What are cookies?

Climate Group cookie use 

We store cookies on your browser or the hard drive of your computer or your device if you agree. Our websites use different types of cookies, including to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our websites and allows us to improve our sites. We may also obtain information about your general internet usage to enable us to estimate our audience size and usage pattern, to store information about your preferences, to speed up your searches and to recognise you when you will return to our site. 

You can find out more about the types of cookies we use below. For more information about how we process personal data, please visit our Privacy Policy.  

Consent to cookies 

Under data protection law, certain cookies are allowed to be stored on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of the website. Other types of cookies are considered optional and need your permission.  

You can choose which optional (analytical, functionality, targeting and social media) cookies we can set by clicking on the button(s) in your cookie settings which is the banner that appears at the bottom of the web screen, or by using settings on your browser.  Some cookies are placed by third party services that appear on our pages.

Your consent for optional cookies will expire after 6 months. If you visit our website again before the expiration date, you won’t need to ‘reconsent’ to the cookies unless you’ve cleared your cookies through your browser settings. This doesn’t apply to strictly necessary cookies

How do I change my cookie settings? 

You can change your cookie preferences at any time in the cookie settings by using the toggle [LINK TO COOKIE PREFERENCE CENTRE]. You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect. 

Alternatively, your web browser may allow you to disable and/or clear cookies (including strictly necessary cookies) through the browser settings. You can check the browser developer website for more information on how to do this. 

What types of cookies does Climate Group use? 

We use the following cookies: 

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the core operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure  areas of our website (such as our Members-only areas), or to make a donation. They are always enabled on our website, as they are essential for the website to function properly. You may be able to block these cookies yourself on your device/browser but, without these cookies, our website is unlikely to work as you would expect or you may be unable to access certain parts of our websites. These cookies do not store any personal information. 
  • Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our websites when they are using them. This helps us to improve the way our websites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.  
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our websites. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). 
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our websites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website more relevant to your interests. 
  • Social media cookies. We may obtain your personal information through your use of social media such as Facebook or LinkedIn, depending on your settings or the privacy policies of these social media services. To change your settings on these services, please refer to their privacy policies which will tell you how to do this. 

These cookies do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. 

We do not share the information collected by the cookies with any third parties.
