These Cookies allow the Platforms to remember choices you have made such as your user name, language, the region you are in. They therefore provide a more enhanced and personalised experience.  

They also include social media plug-ins which enable you to share our Platform content via your social media account(s) or easily share information with others.  We have a presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, TikTok, Weibo, Douyin, Kuaishao, Toutiao and WeChat. If you click on any of the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube icons on our website, you will be taken to our pages or profiles on those platforms. The platforms may then start tracking your behaviour using Cookies for their own purposes; for example, to better understand your interests so that they can present relevant content or advertising to you.  Data about you may also be transmitted to the social media channel even if you don’t click on the plug-in.  The social media platforms will provide us with statistical information, which we use to help understand how you and our other users interact with our social medial presence.  All these platforms provide you with some control over their use of non-essential tracking technology and you can find details of how to exercise this control by reviewing their privacy and cookie notices.  We have contractual arrangements in place with the social media channels we use.  Please contact us for more information.

Our marketing emails

Our marketing emails contain a campaign-unique “web pixel” to tell us how you interact with our communications.  For example, whether you opened the email or clicked on a link in it.  We use this information to help determine which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query if you should to continue receiving emails if you do not open them. In general, these pixels help us to understand how effective our marketing campaigns are and your level of engagement with us. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email.

If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should opt-out of email marketing altogether or configure your email to not load remote images by default or view your emails in plaintext format. 

List-based targeting 

Sometimes we will use Cookies, or other identifiers such as your email address, to create a list of  individuals who we would like to target advertising about our products and services to when those individuals use certain social media platforms.  This type of list is often referred to as a “Custom Audience”.  For more information about our use of this type of list based marketing and other similar tools, please visit our Privacy Policy.
