What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer or mobile device. Our website collects information and stores it in the form of cookies on your hard drive. 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 ERG use cookies?

We use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required in order to enable you to use our website.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to collect information about how visitors use the site and count the number of visitors. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). The information these cookies collect cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties such as advertisers.

This website uses the Laravel framework and Google Analytics which uses all of the above types of cookies.

The cookies that we collect do not contain personally identifiable information (PII).
