4. Cookies and similar technologies
4.1. A cookie is a small text file that contains information that can later be analysed by us to facilitate your access to and use of our Sites, gather statistical data and personalise your online experience as part of the Community. Cookies may be set by our Sites or by third parties, such as those within our Community who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on our Sites.
4.2. Our Sites and emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they may not be stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality may be restricted.
4.3. While the cookies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update our Sites, we mainly use the following types of cookies:
(a) Essential / required cookies. Essential cookies are necessary for the operation of our Sites. We may use essential cookies to authenticate users, prevent fraudulent use of user accounts and/or offer our Sites’ features.
(b) Analytical/performance cookies. Analytical/Performance cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and see how visitors move around our Sites when using it. This helps us improve the way our Sites work and enhance our Community experience.
(c) Security cookies. Security cookies help us identify and prevent potential security risks when you access and/or use our Sites and their content, features and functions.
(d) Functionality cookies. Functionality cookies are used to recognise you as part of the Community across our Sites and when you return to our Sites. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
(e) Targeting cookies. Targeting cookies record your visits to our Sites, the pages you have visited, and the links you have followed. We may use this information and share it with third parties to create, develop, make and/or publish our Sites and their content more relevant to your interests, for example, webinars sponsored by our Events’ sponsors/exhibitors and products/services of others within our Community which you may be interested in.
(f) Third-Party / embedded cookies. Our Sites may make use of different third-party applications and services to enhance your experience with our Community, including but not limited to social media platforms or embedded third-party content. As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties and be used by them to track your online activity. We have no direct control over the information that is collected by these cookies. For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to manage our Sites and track the use of the content we provide to help us better target advertising on other third-party sites that market our activities, events, exhibitions, products and services.
