We may use “cookies” to identify visitors to the site and to provide information to Golden Kompass about how the site is used. Cookies will also help us to provide you with a good experience when you browse the site. Cookies are widely used by web sites for these purposes.
A cookie is a small piece of text which attaches to your computer or device (but does not access your computer or device) and which can store and track information on how you make use of this site.
Most browsers will automatically accept a cookie but it is possible to set your browser to notify you prior to the cookie being sent, to allow you to accept or reject it. The “help” function in your browser should help you check how to do this on your computer or device. To remove or disable any cookies we have already set on your computer or device, please refer to the “help” function in your browser and follow the instructions provided.
The cookies we use are “analytical” or “functional” cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to the site and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works and the information made available to visitors, for example by ensuring that visitors are finding what they are looking for easily. They are cookies supplied by the relevant non-Golden Kompass companies listed below, and you can visit their web sites for more details of each cookie and how it works.
These are the cookies we use, along with some details about them:
|Google Analytics cookies||Estimate our audience size and usage pattern||A cookie of this type is set when you first visit the site. Google Analytics cookies do not collect personal information about site visitors.
|SiteCore cookies||These cookies remember your settings/preferences for increased usability throughout Golden Kompass sites||These cookies enable us to detect the appropriate language for you to view our site and to recognise when you return to our site (to avoid completing duplicate registration forms to download white papers, register for events etc.) One of these cookies is set when you first visit the site so that you do not receive the cookie message unnecessarily on future visits. You can delete this cookie but it will mean that we do not remember you and you will see the cookie message again.|
|session tracking cookies||Although these cookies are set when you visit this site, they are not actively used by us||When a user connects to a web site, such as this site, a session identification number (SID) is created for the visitor’s session and that value is stored in a temporary cookie that is deleted when the browsing session ends. The SID is used to differentiate between visitor browsing sessions and, if needed, to store and retrieve information associated with each visitor’s session.http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178581.aspx|
