3.            Cookie policy

 

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

 

All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser.

Cookies can be removed in two ways: automatically, when they expire, or when you manually delete them.

 

For more information on cookies, see: http://www.allaboutcookies.org

 

Does Ethical Corporation use cookies?

Yes, with the primary purpose to make our website work more effectively, to collect statistics to optimize site functionality, and deliver content tailored to your interests

We do not use flash cookies (sometimes known as local shared objects or LSOs).

We do not allow third-party advertising networks to drop cookies on our site to behaviourally target advertising to our users, either.

 

What kinds of cookies does Ethical Corporation use and why?

 

We use different kinds of cookies for various reasons:

•             Session cookies - these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. We use session cookies to grant access to content and enable commenting (things you have to log in to do).

•             Persistent cookies - these usually have an expiration date far into the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. We also use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the site for our customers.

What other cookies might I encounter on Ethical Corporation?

There are also limited third-party cookies on the site. These cookies could be session or persistent and are set by entities other than Ethical Corporation. To ensure compliance with our policies, we restrict the use of third-party cookies to trusted partners. For example, we currently allow:

•             Social sharing and login - On many of the pages of the site you will see ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. For example, buttons include: Twitter, Google +, Facebook , LinkedIn. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of Ethical Corporation.

 

You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Ethical Corporation’s site. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

 

•             Audience measurement and validation - These cookies collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

•             Other functionality - We use a number of external web services on the Ethical Corporation site, mostly to display content within our web pages. For example, to display slideshows we sometimes use SlideShare; to show videos we use Vimeo and YouTube.

 

This is not an exhaustive or complete list of the services we use, or might use in the future, when embedding content, but these are the most common. As with the social buttons we cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not know who you are but are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.

 

Do we use cookies to sell customer information?

No.
