Cookies, Social Media And Marketing Technologies
The following types of cookies are set on our website:
Internal Cookies Essential for our Website to Work
We use first-party cookies to help our website work in the best possible manner. Such cookies enable core functionality within our website, are used for security, network management, accessibility, to allow you to access secure areas of our website and to remember your cookies preferences. As a result of the essential of these cookies, they cannot be opted out through our website, but you can disable or delete them by adjusting your browser settings. Please note, however, that without these cookies, your user experience may be impacted.
In conjunction with obtaining information through cookies, our web servers may log details such as your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your device is located. The web server logs also may record information such as the address of the web page that linked you to our website and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.
To control which web servers, collect this information, we may place tags on our web pages called “web beacons.” These are computer instructions that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies.
Third Party Web Analytics Cookies
In certain cases, you may also deactivate the ability of these analytics services to analyse your browsing activities through the third-party provider. To learn more about web analytics service, and to exercise your choice with respect to their collection of information on our website:

Tracking And Performance Technologies
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are small graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our website or opened an email that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Some of the emails we send to you may also contain pixel or tracked links which allows us to identify when you have opened the email and to verify which links contained in the email you have accessed. We use this information to determine which parts of our emails are of most interest to you as well as to more generally gauge how our subscribers engage with our email content.
You can delete the pixel by deleting the email. If you do not wish to download the pixel to your computer or other device, you can ensure this by selecting to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML, or not opening pictures in your email.
Information we send using social media and marketing technologies
We partner with companies such as LinkedIn who will serve cookies to you when you visit our website.
In particular, we use the LinkedIn Insight Tag which allows us to perform in-depth campaign reporting and unlock insights about users that may visit our website via our LinkedIn campaigns (e.g. by allowing us to discover business demographics by layering LinkedIn data on data about our website visitors). We and LinkedIn are joint controllers of the processing involved in collecting and sending your personal information to LinkedIn.
LinkedIn may also process your personal information as our processors, for the purposes of matching, online targeting, measurement, reporting and analytics purposes. These services include the processing that LinkedIn’s platform carries out when they display our advertisements to you in your news feed at our request after matching contact details for you that we have uploaded to them.
If you are located in the EU, LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (“LinkedIn Ireland”) will be the controller of your personal information; if you reside outside of the EU, LinkedIn Corporation will be the controller of your personal information. For further information on LinkedIn’s data processing activities can be found on LinkedIn’s help pages regarding its Page Insights and its terms and conditions relating to its advertising services, including LinkedIn Insight Tag.
