Cookie information

At CABI we are committed to protecting your privacy. This statement discloses how CABI's websites use cookies.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent by a website to your web browser, where it becomes stored for later retrieval; usually it is a text file which is placed in the browser directory of your computer's hard drive.

The cookie cannot be read by any website other than the one that set up the cookie.

Most web browsers will accept cookies by default, but they can be set to reject cookies, either from all websites or from specific sites. You can also manually delete cookies from your web browser. These options are generally set through a "privacy" setting in your browser setup.

You can learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on how to control cookies on a wide variety of browsers.

You can also manage your ad preferences via the website Your Online Choices www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.


How we use cookies on our websites

We use cookies to recognise users after they have registered to use a website or paid for access to a website. On occasion, we permit third parties to place and read cookies on our customers' browsers, in order to deliver information of relevance to the user.

Cookies will enable our web-sites to recognize the information you have consented to give and use it to present you with custom web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic welcome page, you might see a welcome page with your name on it. Some features on this site will not function if you do not allow cookies.
