Cookies

Introduction

Welcome to our Cookie Policy. This policy explains what cookies are and how we use them on our website.

By using our website, you agree to our use of cookies in accordance with this policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device when you visit a website. They are used to remember your preferences and settings, to help us understand how visitors use our website, and to improve your overall experience on our website.

There are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies are temporary cookies that are erased when you close your browser. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain on your device until they expire or you delete them.

Managing cookies

You can manage cookies through your browser settings. Most browsers allow you to delete cookies, block cookies, or accept cookies on a case-by-case basis. You can set your browser to accept or reject all, or certain, cookies. However, please note that if you disable cookies, some features of our website may not function properly.

For more information about how to manage cookies, please refer to your browser’s help section.

Changes to cookie policy

We reserve the right to modify this Cookie Policy at any time. Any changes will be posted on our website, and we encourage you to review this policy regularly.

Cookies that we use

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on our website. The cookies that we use are listed below:

Necessary or Essential cookies

These cookies are necessary for the website to function properly. They include cookies that enable you to access secure areas of our website, use our shoppingG cart, and make purchases. These cookies enable core functionality such as security, network management, and accessibility. You may disable these by changing your browser settings, but this may affect how the website functions.

Purpose of necessary cookies

The essential cookies that we use on our website are technically necessary for the site to function properly. For example, essential cookies are required so that you can log into your account, set your preferences and complete forms. They remember you and your settings, and save you having to retype information when navigating between pages. They ensure our pages load quickly by distributing the workload. Essential cookies are also necessary for our site to distinguish between browsers, differentiate users behind a shared IP address so as to deliver correct content, and to recognise trusted traffic and apply security settings.

Data processed by essential cookies

When you navigate to and around our website our essential cookies collect your session ID, a time stamp of your visit and log in, and session verification data. Our essential cookies may also collect information about your browser type and settings, device type and settings, operating system and mobile network.

Recipients

We process data collected by essential cookies on our own servers. Data collected by certain essential cookies may be collected, in aggregate form only from which no one visitor to our site can be identified or distinguished from another, by our third party essential cookie providers such as Sitecore, for their own purposes.

Transfers

Our global presence means that your personal information may be transferred across the business worldwide due, for example, to our shared IT systems and data centres, and cross-border working practices. For more information about such transfers across our business please see section 3 of our Privacy Policy.

Duration

Certain of our essential cookies are session cookies, meaning they expire once you exit your session and close your browser. Other of our essential cookies may last for six months or longer, for example to remember your cookie preferences for this period and to recognise trusted traffic, or for as long as you retain an online account with us.

Analytics cookies

Analytics cookies are used by us for statistical analysis purposes. This helps us to understand how visitors use and move around our website, which inform improvements and adaptions to our website to best meet our visitors’ needs by, for example, making the most popular features the easiest to find and access or ensuring that our site works properly on the devices and technologies that our visitors use.

These cookies work by using a distinctive sequence of characters from which your browser or device can be identified (‘unique ID’), which, for example, can be used by us to recognise the date and time of your visit(s) to our site. Our analytics cookies may also collect information about your browser type and settings, device type and settings, operating system and mobile network. This information is used to distinguish you from other visitors to our site, but it cannot be used to identify you as a named individual.

We will only set these types of cookies where you have provided us with your consent to do so by either choosing to ‘Accept All’ cookies or by adjusting your cookie settings via the ‘ Manage Consent Preferences’ . Where we process your personal information using these types of cookies, we do so on the basis of that consent.

Rejecting our analytics cookies will prevent us from collecting the data described above to improve our site for you and other visitors. The performance and functionality of our site will not be affected.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a widely used platform for measuring the performance of a website. It helps us to understand things like what our visitors are reading and what technology (e.g. browsers) we should prioritise for testing. This information is used to help us give you the best possible experience – more of what you want, and less of what you don’t.

We process the data collected by these Google Analytics cookies. Google Analytics may provide us with technical support. Data may be collected – in aggregate form only from which no one visitor to our site can be identified or distinguished from another – by Google Analytics to help improve Google Analytics’ products and services.

Rejecting analytic cookies will prevent us from using Google Analytics cookies to collect data about your visit(s) to our site, which would be used by us in aggregation with other visitors’ data to understand visitors’ behaviour and how many visits are made to our site. This will not affect any consent to the use of Google Analytics cookies that you may give to other websites.

Social media cookies

We have configured the social media plug-ins on our website to only set cookies on devices used by logged-in members of those social media platforms. For example, we may advertise the services that we provide and job opportunities on certain third party websites such as LinkedIn. We use cookies from those third parties’ sites on our own website to:

  • provide us with anonymised demographics and browsing activity information of the logged-in visitors to our own website;
  • help us to tailor our advertising on the websites of those third parties to previous logged-in visitors to certain pages of our own site; and
  • help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising.

These cookies work by using a distinctive sequence of characters from which your browser or device can be identified (‘unique ID’). Social media cookies may also collect information about your browser type and settings, device type and settings, operating system and mobile network. This information is used to distinguish you from other visitors to our site, but it cannot be used to identify you as a named individual.

We will only set these types of cookies where you have provided us with your consent to do so by either choosing to ‘Allow all cookies’ or by adjusting your cookie settings via the ‘Manage Consent Preferences’ above. Where we process your personal information using these types of cookies, we do so on the basis of that consent.

Rejecting these cookies will prevent us from relating your visits to our website to our LinkedIn marketing campaigns. It will also prevent any cookies that you have given consent for LinkedIn to use to better understand your browsing behaviour to be stored on your device via finbridge-global.com.

LinkedIn

These cookies help us to understand the performance of any advertising we do on the LinkedIn platform. They also allow us to deliver adverts to people who are likely to be interested in them (based on what they have read on our website). For example, we might promote the new version of an annual report to those who read the previous year’s report.

We process the data collected by these LinkedIn cookies. LinkedIn may provide us with technical support. Data may be collected – in aggregate form only from which no one visitor to our site can be identified or distinguished from another – by LinkedIn for its own purposes.
