What are cookies?
We use the term 'cookies' to refer to all technologies which store or access information stored on the device that you use to access the Online Services, such as your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Some cookies are necessary to ensure the smooth running of the service you are using and to enable you to login and authenticate where required. Others provide advertising, online analytics and performance information. Our control ensures these types of cookies are NOT dropped onto your device before you have exercised your right to accept or reject their use.
There are different types of cookies, for example:
- Cookies served directly by The British Land Group PLC ('first party cookies') and cookies served by third parties, for example by advertisers and data analytics companies ('third party cookies'); and
- Cookies which endure for different periods of time, including those that only last only as long as your browser is open (referred to as 'session cookies') and which are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are 'permanent cookies', meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. For example, they recognise your device when you open your browser and browse the internet again. How long they remain will depend on the cookie in question. For more information please refer to the column headed 'Duration' in the table below
