Cookie Notice

The purpose of this notice is to provide users of our website with information about what cookies are and how they work. It also explains the cookies we intend to use, the purposes for which we intend to use them, third parties who may process the information stored and how you can control what cookies we use when you visit our website.

What are cookies?

Cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as tags, scripts and beacons, are small pieces of code (referred to as cookies hereafter) that are stored on your device (computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc) when you visit a website. They enable a website to “personalise” itself to a user by remembering information about the user’s visit to the website.

Cookies are used to collect information, where available, about your device, your IP address, operating system and browser type and how you have interacted with our websites.

While cookies are used to identify users and devices, they only ever collect non-personal information such as IP addresses, device IDs. If the data cookies we collect are ever merged with any other information with which you have provided us, such as email addresses, these are anonymised in such a way that identification to actual people is impossible.

Why do we use cookies?

Our website uses cookies to:

  • connect with LinkedIn to display content to you in a more personalised way;
  • evaluate our website’s performance via Google Analytics and gain insight into the nature of our audience so we can tailor our content accordingly; and
  • provide interest-based advertising on other websites (namely trade publications such as and Global Capital) which are tailored to your interests and preferences.

We also use cookies within emails we may send.

We have a legitimate interest to use cookies so that we can show you content we believe you might be interested in, to control the number of times you see an advert and to measure the effectiveness of a campaign.

We will always make sure our website contains clear and easy to find information about our cookies.

What types of cookies do we use and how long do they last?

We use three types of cookies – necessary cookies, analytics cookies and advertising cookies:

  • Necessary cookies – These cookies are essential in order to provide you with the content on our website and in order for us to comply with legal obligations. They are always active on our website.
  • Analytics cookies – These cookies collect information such as how many people visit our website, how many new visitors we have, and what parts of the website they visit. These cookies help us monitor how effective our website is and to improve it, tailoring it to our visitors. We require your consent to use analytics cookies.
  • Advertising cookies – These cookies are used to display Quantile advertising on third party sites such as and Global Capital. These are very infrequent and purely campaign driven. We require your consent to use advertising cookies.

Cookies can be session cookies or persistent cookies:

  • Per-session cookies – We only use these while you are visiting our website and they are deleted when you leave. They remember you as you move between pages. They also help maintain security.
  • Persistent cookies – These cookies stay on your computer until they expire or are deleted. We set automatic deletion dates so that we don’t keep your information for longer than we need to.

Cookies can also be first party or third-party cookies:

  • First party cookies – These cookies are set by the website or domain you are visiting.
  • Third party cookies – These are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie.

Consent and opting out of cookies

We require your consent to place analytics and advertising cookies on your device, and you have the right to reject such cookies.

We are working on a new cookie management feature which will enable you to manage these directly.

In the meantime, if you want to block all cookies, you can do so via the settings in your browser for each browser you use and each device you use to access the internet. These settings can usually be found in the ‘Settings’, ‘Options’ or ‘Preferences’ menu of your browser. The links below are provided to help you find the settings for some common browsers.
