Persistent cookies allow our website to recognise you when you return to our site another time. This provides us with  useful analytics that help us optimise our website and your visits. 

Session cookies exist just for the life of your current visit whilst you have your browser open. They are not stored on  your hard disk and are erased when you exit your web browser. 

Our websites also use the Facebook Pixel provided by Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). We use the Facebook Pixel to track  user behaviour, which enables us to send you relevant, targeted advertising on Facebook. It’s a tracking pixel that  collects information about you, which is used to build and optimize target audiences for Facebook ads. For example, it  collects and sends data, which is connected to an identifier such as your name or IP-address, to Facebook regarding  that you have visited our site and what you clicked on. The pixel sends this data to Facebook where it’s matched with  your user profile if you have one. So, when we create an ad on Facebook, we can ask Facebook to target the ad to  people having visited our site and then it might pop up in your feed. We do not collect or store any personal data about  you through the Pixel, but Facebook does. If you would like to opt out of this data processing, you can use the settings  and opt out options provided by Facebook under facebook.com/ads/preferences/edit. 

The LinkedIn Insight Tag is a piece of code that we have added to our websites to enable in-depth campaign reporting  and to help us unlock valuable insights about our website visitors. We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag to track conversions,  retarget website visitors, and unlock additional insights about members interacting with our LinkedIn adverts. 

The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of metadata such as IP address information, timestamp, and events  such as page views. All data is encrypted. The LinkedIn browser cookie is stored in a visitor’s browser until they delete  the cookie or the cookie expires (there’s a rolling six-month expiration from the last time the visitor’s browser loaded the  Insight Tag). 

You can opt out of cookies from LinkedIn on your LinkedIn settings page and recommend you read their Cookie Policy  for more information. 

Social buttons 

On many of the pages of our website you will see ‘social buttons’. These allow you to share or bookmark pages on our  site.  

Social media sites such as Twitter, Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn may collect information about your internet activity.  They may record if you visit our Platforms and the specific pages you are on if you are logged into their services, even  if you don’t click on the button. Where this happens, we may be joint controllers with the social media site over the data  transmitted to them from our website. However they will be a separate controller for any subsequent use of your data.  You can exercise your rights in relation to jointly controlled data against either us or the social media partner. 

For their subsequent use, you should check the privacy and cookies policies of each of these sites to see how exactly  they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.
