This Policy sets out how we collect and process information about you on LAIS sites through the use of cookies. We use the term “cookies” in this Policy to refer to website cookies and to similar technologies that may collect information automatically when you visit LAIS sites (such as pixel tags, web beacons, device IDs and similar technologies).

2.What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file or a piece of information that may be stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Almost every website uses cookie technology. Cookies serve a number of purposes such as letting you navigate between webpages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our Website before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. This functionality makes cookies extremely useful to improve your user experience when you return to a website you have already visited.

3.How long do cookies last for?
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are ‘session cookies’. These cookies exist only while your browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘persistent cookies’. These cookies survive after your browser is closed until a defined expiration date. They can be used by websites to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

 

4.What other technologies are used to track my LAIS site visits?
We may also use other tracking technologies, such as pixel tags and web beacons, to better tailor LAIS sites in order to provide a better service.
