Cookie Policy

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

Cookies we use

We use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:

SourcePurposeExpiryHow to Block
Linkedin Analytics

This site uses LinkedIn to advertise our services. Cookies may be used to learn whether someone who saw an ad later visited and took an action (e.g. downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on our site. Similarly, LinkedIn partners may use a cookie to determine whether an ad has been shown and how it performed, or to provide information about how you interact with ads.

Some of the cookies set for this purpose are automatically removed from your device once you close your browser. Others may last for a period of up to 6 months. For a full list of LinkedIn cookies and their expiration dates, see here.

If you don't want us to use cookies when you visit LinkedIn, you can opt-out of some cookies on your Linkedin settings page, or by visiting your browser settings

Google Adwords

When you click on an ad from Google Search or selected Google Display Network sites, or when you view a video ad, a temporary cookie is placed on your computer or mobile device. When you complete an action we have defined, our system recognises the cookie (through a code snippet we added), and a conversion is recorded. Only pages containing the Google conversion tag are tracked through this program.

Some of the cookies set for this purpose are automatically removed from your device once you close your browser. Others may last for a period of up to 24 months from your last visit to our site.

For more information about how Google uses advertising cookies, visit the Google Advertising Privacy FAQ. To manage settings for these cookies and opt-out of these features, visit the Ads Settings.

Linkedin Ads

This site uses LinkedIn to advertise our services. Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help Linkedin to serve relevant ads to you more effectively. These cookies may be used to show you relevant advertising both on and off the LinkedIn site.

Some of the cookies set for this purpose are automatically removed from your device once you close your browser. Others may last for a period of up to 6 months. For a full list of LinkedIn cookies and their expiration dates, see here.

Google AdWords / Google Analytics

This website uses the Google Remarketing Service to advertise on third-party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the website. Any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.

The default membership duration for how long you will remain on a remarketing list is 30 days, but can be set to a maximum duration of 540 days. Visitors or users are removed from the list by when membership expires, unless you use the website again (in this case the clock is reset for the set duration).

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page.

DoubleClick Conversion

Google DoubleClick uses conversion cookies, whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times people who click on their ads end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked the ad and later visited the advertiser's site.

Some of the cookies set for this purpose are automatically removed from your device once you close your browser. Others may last for a period of up to 24 months from your last visit to our site.

DoubleClick

Provides advertising agencies with information on your visit so that they can present you with adverts that you may be interested in when you return to our website or visit other third party websites. Measure success of digital advertising campaigns from onsite actions. Deliver content and marketing communications tailored to your interests based on information from your visit.

The cookie that Google adds to a user's computer when he or she views or clicks on an ad expires in 30 days.

This measure, and the fact that Google uses separate servers for conversion tracking and search results, protects the user's privacy.

Such information is also used to diagnose delivery or download problems and to pay font foundries.
