Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Carbon Financial Partners Limited) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit):
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features.
|cookie-consent||7 days||Used to keep track of your cookie preferences.|
|CraftSessionId||Session (until the browser is closed)||The website content management system (Craft CMS) relies on PHP sessions to maintain sessions across web requests via the PHP session cookie.|
|CRAFT_CSRF_TOKEN||Session (until the browser is closed)||Created to facilitate protection against cross-site request forgeries. This helps to safeguard data as it is submitted through forms on the website.|
The above cookies do not collect any personal or sensitive information. These cookies do not collect IP addresses, and neither does the information they store get passed to any 3rd parties.
Craft's cookies are only used to communicate with the Craft installation for the purposes of user authentication, form validation/security, and basic web application operations.
These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Websites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our Websites for you.
This website uses Google Analytics to provide us with statistical information to improve our website’s content and functionality by reporting, for example, which are the most popular pages and / or which search terms were entered to reach the site.
Again, no individual can be identified by the data which is collected. These cookies are set automatically, unless you have disabled cookies in your browser.
Google Analytics uses the following cookies:
|__utma||2 years||This cookie keeps track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site, when their first visit was, and when their last visit occurred.|
|__utmb||30 minutes||Holds timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor first visits the site.|
|__utmc||Session (until the browser is closed)||Holds timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor leaves the site.|
|__utmt||10 minutes||Holds details of either an event, transaction, item or custom variable. We don’t have any events of this nature set up on the site.|
|__utmz||6 months||Keeps track of where the visitor came from, what search engine they used, what link was clicked on, what keyword they used, and where in the world they are when they accessed the website.|
|_ga||2 years||Included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the site’s user reports.|
|_gat(*)||1 minute||Queues requests sent to Google Analytics.|
|_gid||24 hours||Holds a unique value to distinguish between users.|
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Websites may also use so-called "Flash Cookies" (also known as Local Shared Objects or "LSOs") to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.
If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel . You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).
Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.
Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.
