What are cookies
Cookies are a common feature used on almost all websites. A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto a device to allow a website to recognise that device and to store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions on that website. A cookie is designed to provide a number of features to help the site operate effectively and to improve the experience of the reader.
When you visit our site, we collect information from you automatically using cookies or similar technology, unless you manage your cookies as set out above.
- Keeping you signed in
- Understanding how you use our site
- Showing you articles that are relevant to you
- Showing you A-M-I products and services that are relevant to you
- Working with partners to serve you relevant advertising
- Ultimately, this allows us to publish the journalism that you read on our sites and apps.
Other organisations also collect user information on our sites through cookies, tags and pixels. Tags and pixels, also known as web beacons, are similar to cookies but are collected through embedded images.
Using cookies and other technology allows other organisations to help us to analyse how our site is being used, measure the number of visitors to the site, and display advertising.
Cookies that are used by A-M-I are referred to as “first-party cookies” and those that are used by our partners are “third-party cookies”. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access third-party cookies; nor can other organisations access the data in the cookies we use on our website. There are more details about both in the following sections.
We use both session and persistent cookies on the Service and we use different types of cookies to run the Service.
