In order to comply with new rules, we use a system of classifying the different types of cookies which we use on this website, or which may be dropped by third parties through our websites. The classification was developed by the International Chamber of Commerce UK and explains more about which cookies we use, why we use them, and the functionality you will lose if you decide you don’t want to have them on your device.
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.
Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and support relevant information and functionality. They also enable us to keep the website and information up to date, relevant, error free and indicate to us useful information about how the AGR website is being used.
A list of the main cookies used on the AGR website by category is set out below. We will review and update this list on a regular basis. The categories of cookies which are used are: Strictly necessary Cookies Performance Cookies Social media and sharing tools
Strictly necessary CookiesThese cookies enable services you have specifically asked for. For those types of cookies that are strictly necessary, no consent is required. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website.
Performance CookiesThese cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited. By using the website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device. These cookies collect information about how visitors use the website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the AGR website works.
Social media and sharing toolsThis website may utilise social media and sharing tools throughout the website including, but not limited to, Vimeo and YouTube. Using these elements of the website allows these service providers to set cookies on your device and track your behaviours within their platforms.
