Cookies on the AES UK & Ireleand website

This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help us customise your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.

What are 'cookies'?

'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a 'memory' for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately. ?

How does the AES UK & Ireland’s website use cookies? 

A visit to a page on the AES UK & Ireland's website may generate the following types of cookie:

  1. Site performance cookies
  2. Anonymous analytics cookies
  3. Other third party cookies

Site performance cookies?

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on the AES UK & Ireland's website, so you don't have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:

  • volume settings for our video player
  • video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an 'anonymous analytics cookie'. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.

Other third party cookies

On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies we use on our website.

For example, when you share a page using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook) on the AES UK & Ireland website, the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.

How do I turn cookies off?
