This website uses cookies

When you visit our website, the site asks your browser to store a small piece of data (text file) called a cookie on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Those cookies are set by us and called first-party cookies. We also use third-party cookies, which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting, for our advertising and marketing efforts. More specifically, we use cookies and other tracking technologies for the following purposes:

Various types of cookies facilitate you navigate between different pages on a website efficiently, remembering preferences you gave while visiting a website, and improving overall user experience. Others are used to provide you with advertising tailored to your interests or to measure the number of site and page visits.

Session based versus Persistent cookies

Some cookies are installed only for the duration of your visit to a website; these are called session based cookies. They automatically expire when you close your browser. Another type of cookie would remain on your device for a period of time. These are known as persistent cookies. The cookies used on this site are based on the International Chamber of Commerce guide for cookie categories.

Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but that will cause some parts of the site to not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

For example, these cookies will:

  • remember information you’ve entered on forms when you navigate to different pages in a single session, and
  • identify you as logged in to the website.

These cookies don’t gather any information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet. These cookies are not used to gather information that could be used to advertise products or services to you or remember your preferences or username beyond your current visit. Accepting these cookies is a condition of using the website, so if you disable these cookies we cannot guarantee or predict how our website will perform during your visit.

Performance cookies. These cookies (the Website Manager partner (INTRACT, TECPAR and NBS uses Google Analytics) allow us to carry out statistical analysis of page use, interactions, and paths a user takes through the website to improve the performance of our site. This is known as ‘digital analytics,’ where this information allows us to know what content on our site is the most and least popular, as well as allowing us to know how our users move around and interact with our website overall. The data collected through this cookie is not associated by the Website Manager partner (INTRACT, TECPAR and NBS) with any individual person. In some cases, some of these cookies are managed for us by third parties. Where cookies are managed by third parties, any data may be used by such third parties, but all data is collected and used in aggregated anonymised form.

Using our site indicates that you accept the use of ‘Performance’ cookies. Accepting these cookies is a condition of using the website, so if you prevent them, we cannot guarantee how our site will perform for you.

Functionality cookies are used to provide services or to remember settings and choices you make to improve your experience during your visit. For example, these cookies will:

  • show you when you are logged into the website,
  • remember your login details,
  • remember the settings you’ve applied such as preferences,
  • remember whether we’ve already asked you if you want to fill in a survey, and
  • measure traffic received from various websites.

Functionality cookies collect non-identifiable data. No personal details are stored in this process and the information collected is only used in aggregate. We sometimes share some of the information with partners to provide a service on our website. In addition, some of these cookies are managed for us by third parties. In any case, the information shared or collected by third parties is only to be used to provide the service, product, or function and not for any other purpose.

We will only collect functionality cookies based on your selection. If you accept the use of cookies, we will store this information in a cookie named ‘cookiesettings’.
