What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Data stored in a cookie is created by a website’s server when you connect with it. This data is labeled with an ID unique to you and your device. Cookies are widely used by website owners 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, Investec) 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. advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and when it visits certain other websites.
Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate. We refer to these as "essential" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
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.
How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to use our Websites and accept or reject certain types of cookies at any time. You can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences in our Cookie Consent Manager. The Cookie Consent Manager allows you to select which categories of cookies you accept or reject. Essential cookies cannot be rejected, as they are strictly necessary to provide you with our Websites’ services.
All data we collect is governed by our Private Policies, which can be viewed here.
In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
What types of cookies do we use?
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our website and to enable the use of some of its features, such as access to secure areas.
Experience and insights cookies:
These cookies help us to deliver a better website experience for you by enabling us to understand how our website is currently being used and where users are struggling to get what they need.
These cookies help us to remember the choices you make on our website, so we can offer you more relevant products and content, and personalise your experience with our services. This applies to the features of our website that can be customised, saving you time on re-entering some of your data.
These cookies help us make our messages more relevant to you. Data is shared with other Investec systems or with third parties such as platforms we may use to deliver personalised advertisements and messages. Switching off these cookies means you could still see adverts from us, but they will be less relevant to you.
You can always see which of the above cookies are being collected in the Cookie Consent Manager by following the steps below:
1. Open the Cookie Consent Manager by selecting the floating icon in the bottom left of your screen (when viewing any of our web pages).
2. In the Cookie Consent Manager pop-up box that opens, expand the relevant cookie category under the “Manage Consent Preferences” heading.
3. Select the “Cookie Details” hyperlink under the description of that cookie category.
4. Select “View Cookies” to see details about every cookie.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognise 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 recognise 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.
To support our website, we sometimes embed audio files, images and video content from social media websites. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from (for example) YouTube or Instagram, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. Investec does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the third-party websites for more information about these.
In parts of our Websites, we will also embed 'share' buttons to enable users of our Websites to easily share articles or pages with their friends through social media networks. These sites may set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service. Investec does not control the dissemination of these cookies and you should check the relevant third-party website for more information about these.
