What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device when you access most websites on the internet. Cookies help the websites you visit, or other websites on the internet (in the case of third party cookies), to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or provide us with insights into how people use our website.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location. The technology that enables these cookies to operate may be provided to ingage by third party service providers.
What sort of cookies does ingage use on the website?
Generally, the cookies we use on the website fall into the following three categories:
1. Essential Cookies
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers, allow them to log in to the website, and ensure they can access subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to.
2. Analytical and/or Performance Cookies
Some cookies analyse how our visitors use our websites and monitor website performance. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This can help us to improve the way our website works by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website. Google Analytics cookies fall within this category, and you can find more information about how we use them below.
3. Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences for your return visits to our website, and to provide certain core functions of the website. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and can also be used to prevent and detect forgery. These cookies also enable us to personalise our content for you, provide location-based functions (for example, allowing you to view the location of your meetings), greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
Can a website user block cookies?
As we’ve explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of our website.
