EU law requires organisations placing cookies and similar tracking technologies (such as tracking pixels and website scripts) (“cookies”) through websites onto visitors’ computers to obtain their “consent” after providing clear and comprehensive information about how cookies are used on the websites.
In order to comply with this, we have taken four steps:
The consent approach that is appropriate for any given type of cookie will depend on the intrusiveness of that cookie, taking into account:
For cookies requiring consent, we follow a three-tiered approach for obtaining consent:
Implied consent for most cookies: Cookies deployed through this websites are of low to medium intrusiveness only.
Cookie disclosures by type, rather than by identity: Given the substantial number of cookies served through websites, the assessment in Annex A does not disclose and assess the intrusiveness of each cookie individually. Instead, it groups cookies by category (for example, ‘advertising cookies’, ‘analytics cookies’ and so on) and assesses the intrusiveness of each category, taking into account the specific features of the cookies that are within that category. This enables cookie disclosures that are simpler and clearer for consumers to understand.
NOTE: An assessment of the cookie types served through this website appears in Annex A and provides information about its purpose(s), expiry and information on refusing the Cookies in “How to Block.”
