Informa Global Events Cookies Policy

Our Cookies Policy set out below explains how we use Cookies and which ones we use. It also directs you to information about how to change your personal setting to allow or block Cookies, as you may require.

About Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are saved on a computer or other electronic device when the user visits a website that has Cookies on it. The information stored by Cookies is typically used to identify the user as a return visitor to a website and can further be used to assist the user with log-in forms, analyse behaviour of website users, personalise website pages and remember visitor preferences.

Types of Cookies

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These Cookies enable the provision of services specifically requested by the website user. They are essential in order for users to move around the website and use its features. Without these Cookies services such as e-commerce shopping cannot be provided.

Performance Cookies

These Cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, e.g. which pages visitors go to most often and which pages they most often exit from. These types of Cookies don’t collect information that identifies an individual visitor – rather, the information these types of Cookies collect is anonymous because the purpose of the data collection is to aggregate data.

Functional Cookies

These Cookies allow the website to remember the choices that users make (e.g. user name, language or the region the user is currently in) to provide enhanced and personalised features. They can also be used to remember changes a user makes to pages they are able to customise. They may also be used to provide services to users, such as watching a video or podcast and commenting on a blog. The information these Cookies collect may be anonymised and these types of Cookies cannot track the users’ browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting Cookies

These Cookies are used to deliver adverts to visitors that are supposedly more relevant to the users’ interests. They are also used to limit the number of times a visitor sees an advertisement, as well as to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that users have visited a website and alert organisations that are members of the advertising network. Quite often, targeting Cookies will be linked to website functionality provided by such organisations.

The specific Cookies used on this website are detailed below.
