How we use cookies

As described in our privacy policy, we use cookies to help us to improve our sites and to deliver a better and more personalised service.

Some of the cookies we use are essential for the site to operate, such as those relating to login.

We do not use cookies which would enable us or any third party to track your usage on any sites other than ours.

We do not use any Flash cookies or cookie mechanisms other than standard HTTP cookies for provision of our own services.

If you have a login to our site (required for subscribers to some of our services), we use cookies to facilitate your login, and may at your option use a cookie so that you do not need to enter your username and password every time you wish to login to our website.

Cookies used by Oxford Analytica websites

For convenience, we show cookies across all our sites in this single list. Because we use third-party services to supply some of our functionality, some of those services may introduce cookies of their own. We have documented the main ones we know about, but third parties are responsible for the cookies set by their own applications.

Video-related and third-party cookies

The provider of our video hosting platform, Thomson Reuters Insider, uses a range of cookies to provide their services and for analytic purposes. When you are viewing pages containing video on our website, Thomson Reuters is providing that service to you and may be using cookies. For more information on their privacy policy, seehttp://thomsonreuters.com/privacy_policy/.

We occasionally use other third parties to provide video or other services. Please note that third parties may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

Blocking cookies

You may block cookies by activating settings on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be to access all or parts of our sites. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon you visit our sites.

Most of the cookies we use are known as session cookies, which allow us to make your browsing experience faster and more seamless - session cookies will expire whenever you close your browser or shut down your computer, and such cookies need not be blocked. Other cookies used for specific purposes will expire when that purpose is no longer required, such as when a survey closes.

You can find out more about how to block cookies in specific browsers at http://aboutcookies.org.

Browser manufacturers also provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products. Please see below for more information.
