Our Cookie Policy

Last updated: February 2024

We use cookies and similar technologies (such as tags, pixels and mobile apps) to improve your experience on the website and to recommend content that may be of interest to you. When we talk about ‘cookies’ in this policy, we are referring to all of these technologies. You can find out more below about what cookies are, the cookies we use and how to switch them off. We will deploy only strictly necessary cookies until you have made your choices in relation to which cookies you choose to allow.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a text file containing a unique identifier that is downloaded to your device when you access a website or mobile app. The text file is then sent back to our server each time your browser requests a page from the server. This enables us to operate the website more effectively so that it reflects your personal preferences, based on your previous browsing on the website as well as keywords we may be able to gather from URLs of other webpages from which you accessed the website. 

Cookies can also allow us to do various other things, as explained below. Cookies can be used for the duration of your visit, or they can be set to last longer so we can measure how you interact with us over time. Cookies help us provide you with important features and functionality and ensure you get a great experience. We also use cookies to keep our business secure by detecting fraudulent activity and to help prevent security breaches. 

What cookies do we use?

When you visit the website and consent to cookies, the following types of cookies may be downloaded to your device:

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are required for the administration and operation of the website. Some cookies that we use are necessary for the website to function properly and to enable you to move around the website and use its features.

Functional cookies 

We may use functional cookies that allow us to remember choices you have made on the website to provide you with an enhanced user experience by delivering content specific to your interests. We may also use cookies to embed certain social posts on the website. 

Analytical and performance cookies (visit tracking)

We may use analytics service providers for website traffic analysis and reporting. Analytics service providers generate statistical and other information about the use of the website through cookies. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how often visitors return to the website, how long they stay, and how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This information helps us to improve the way the website works; for example, it helps users to find what they are looking for easily. The information generated relating to the website may be used to create reports about the use of the site, and the analytics service provider will store this information.

Advertising cookies

These cookies record your visit to the website, the pages you have visited, and the links you have followed to other sites. We will use this information to try to make the website more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with others (such as other Burando Atlantic Group entities) for this purpose.

Do we use any third-party cookies?

We add buttons to allow people to share our news items across their social networks easily.  When we include these social ‘plugins’, it gives those sites the flexibility to use their own cookies. They can’t read any cookies we set from the website, and we can’t read any cookies they set, but it lets them do the same kind of traffic measuring that we do on the rest of the website (and it also lets them know whether you’re logged into their site).

Other sites and services may also use cookies over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical and performance cookies or advertising and targeting cookies, and we use these to improve your experience on the Website.

The following third parties may use cookies:

  • LinkedIn
  • YouTube
  • Google

How do I turn cookies off?

If you do not wish us to download cookies, or if you don’t agree with how we use these cookies, you can change the settings on the website by adjusting the options on the banner that appears on the website. You can also change your internet browser settings to reject cookies.  

For more information, please consult the ‘Help’ section of your browser or visit allaboutcookies.org, which will also provide guidance on how to remove cookies that have already been deployed to your browser.
