What are Cookies and other tracking technologies?

Cookies are small pieces of data (alphanumeric files) that are placed on your device when you visit websites. They are commonly used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information about your use of the website and display content and advertising that is relevant to you.  Other, similar, technologies can also be used to achieve these outcomes.  This could include, for example, SDK tools (which are used on mobile apps), tracking pixels, advertising IDs, social media plug-ins, HTML local storage, Local Shared Objects and device fingerprinting techniques. In this Cookie Notice, we will use the term “Cookies” to refer to both cookies and similar technologies.

Why do We use Cookies?

We use Cookies for a variety of purposes.  We use cookies to improve and analyze your experience on our websites and for marketing purposes. For example, to enable you to navigate between webpages efficiently and to allow our sites to remember your preferences. Cookies can track browsing behaviour to help us to understand how our sites are used so that we can improve them and generate more potential interest in the Arrowsmith Program. Cookies can also help ensure that any adverts that you see on our sites and other websites are more relevant to you and your interests.

Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies. In addition to the Accept and Decline tabs there is an active link to Cookie Settings as a selection option on our cookie notification. This Cookie Settings link will display information from this Cookies Notice about Cookies and the types of cookies used. A user can Click on the different category headings to find out more and change their default settings.

There are a set of cookies that are optional for the websites to function. They are set in response to information provided to the website to personalize and optimize your experience as well as remember your chat history. These Cookies allow the sites to remember choices you have made such as your username, language, the region you are in. They therefore provide a more enhanced and personalised experience.

They also include social media plug-ins which enable you to share our site content via your social media account(s) or easily share information with others.  We have a presence on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. If You click on any of the social media icons on our sites, you will be taken to our pages or profiles on those platforms. The platforms may then start tracking your behaviour using Cookies for their own purposes; for example, to better understand your interests so that they can present relevant content or advertising to you.  Data about you may also be transmitted to the social media channel even if you don’t click on the plug-in. The social media platforms will provide Arrowsmith with statistical information, which we use to help understand how you and our other users interact with our social media presence.  All these platforms provide you with some control over their use of non-essential tracking technology and you can find details of how to exercise this control by reviewing their privacy and cookie notices.  We have contractual arrangements in place with the social media channels we use.

Advertisement Cookies:
