What is this Cookies Policy?
What are cookies?
Cookies are unique identifiers, usually made up of small bits of text or code. Cookies are usually stored on your device or in your web browser and they send certain information back to the party who served the cookie. When we say cookies, we are actually referring to a broader range of technologies than just cookies, including web beacons, clear gifs, pixels and other similar technologies. When we say first-party cookies, we mean cookies that are served by MLA. When we say third-party cookies, we mean cookies that are served by non-MLA parties.
What kinds of cookies are used on the Website?
Our Website primarily uses the following four types of cookies:
- Operationally Necessary Cookies
These are cookies that are essential for the functioning of the site or to perform tasks requested by the user. For example, cookies that enable you to access secure areas of the website, or use the shopping cart. Simply put, they make it possible for you to browse and use our Website.
- Performance Cookies
These cookies gather information about how visitors use the Website and monitor Website performance.
For example, performance cookies tell us which pages are popular, monitor traffic to our Website and compile anonymous analytic information.
Performance cookies can also be used to identify and remedy operational problems with the Website.
- Functionality Cookies
These cookies are used to recognise and remember your preferences.
For example, functionality cookies may use information, such as your location, to make sure that you arrive at a version of our Website that is specific to your city or region.
- Advertising Cookies
We allow third parties to deliver personalised advertising content on our Website and/or on third party websites and applications.
For example, third-party cookies could record information about whether you have clicked on certain content or advertisements on our Website or other websites.
We do not have control over, or access to, third-party advertising cookies or the information they contain.
Third parties manage any information that they collect via cookies they place in accordance with their privacy policies.
For further information about managing third-party cookies please visit the website of the relevant third party or adjust your browser settings.
You can opt-out of third-party personalised advertising cookies (but please note you will still be served online advertisements).
How are cookies used?
As described in more detail above, some cookies are used in order to better understand how applications and websites work and to optimise online and mobile experiences. Cookies do this by allowing the party serving the cookie to analyse a website’s or mobile app’s performance, to identify certain users anonymously and remember their preferences, to better understand whether a computer or device (and probably its user) has visited a website previously and to serve personalised advertisements.
How else can I avoid cookies?
You may be able to avoid certain cookies by configuring your browser settings or opting-out directly with the party that operates and controls the cookie. Please check your browser settings for more information. You also have the ability to accept or decline cookies. You will be presented with a “Cookies Banner” when you first visit our Website and given this option.
Are there cookies in emails?
Our emails contain cookies that track whether you open our emails and whether you click any links within them. The cookies used in our emails to monitor these behaviours are unique to each email and are not stored on your computer or mobile device.
