Cookie Policy

Charles Stanley websites use cookies to provide users with an enhanced experience when browsing and also to allow us to improve our websites.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on the hard drive of your computer if you agree.

None of the cookies used on any of our sites collect personally identifiable information about you.

Which Cookies are used on Charles Stanley websites?

We use the types of cookies explained below on our sites, following the International Chamber of Commerce descriptions for them.  By using any of our sites, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device:

Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are required to enable users to navigate around the site and (where appropriate) to enable us to tailor the content to fit the needs of the visitors. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into and use the secure area of our site. Without these cookies, you will not be able to access the login area; and, on the public area of the site, we cannot ensure that the correct web pages load or that the site performs as well as we intend it to. Analytical/performance cookies: These cookies provide generic statistics on the use of our website by allowing us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how they move around the site. This helps us to improve the way our sites work, for example, by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily. We use Google Analytics for this purpose.

Functionality cookies: These are used to recognise you when you return to our website, so that, for example, your last view of any slideshow is saved or the homepage defaults to the correct version depending on your preferences (for example, your choice of screen view).

Administrative cookies: These cookies are part of our content management system and are used for log-in and search functions (for example, they may remember your username next time you log-in).

Targeting cookies. This type of cookie is used only on the Charles Stanley Direct website.  It records your visit to the Charles Stanley Direct website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed or come into the site on. Depending on the pages that you have visited, the cookie may trigger advertising for Charles Stanley Direct on third-party websites either related or unrelated to the business of Charles Stanley Direct. For example a Charles Stanley Direct advert may be displayed on a media, news, sports or general interest website that you may visit. The targeting cookies may also be used for re-targeting or offer based promotional uses by Charles Stanley Direct from time to time.    

Please see the table below for a comprehensive list of the cookies used on each of the Charles Stanley websites.

How long will the cookies remain?

The length of time for which any cookie remains on your device will depend on its type:

Session Cookies: These are temporary cookies, which only exist in the period you access the site, and assist us in remembering your choice from a previous page, therefore avoiding having to re-enter information.

Persistent Cookies: These are cookies which remain on your device for up to a year after you have visited the site. These cookies help us to identify if you are a first time or frequent visitor.

Our sites use a mixture of both session and persistent cookies, as described in the tables below.

How do I disable or refuse cookies?

Most browsers are set to accept cookies, but you can alter this should you prefer. Your navigation of some of our sites may be less efficient if your browser if set to disable cookies.

Nevertheless, if you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by us, or indeed any other website, the ‘Help’ function within your browser should assist.  For information on how to control cookies on the browser of your mobile device, you will need to refer to your handset manual.  Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on cookies.
