What this Cookie Notice covers
This Cookie Notice sets out:
What is a Cookie?
A Cookie is a small file placed on your device when you visit certain websites. Cookies provide a way for the Websites to recognise users and keep track of the users’ preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preference) over a period of time, so users don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever they come back to the websites. Cookies perform essential functions to improve a user’s browsing experience.
You do not need to have Cookies turned on to visit most of our Websites. However, having Cookies turned on should allow for a better, personalised
experience, and is required for certain parts of the Websites’ functionality. In the majority of cases, a Cookie does not provide us with any personal
Who sets Cookies?
Cookies may be set by our Websites or by another site prior to or during your visit to our Websites.
These are known as ‘first party’ and ‘third party’ Cookies.
First party Cookies belong to the website domain that appears in the browser address bar.
Third-party Cookies belong to website domains different from the one shown in the address bar. Some web pages can feature content from
third-party domains (such as banner ads). Other sites may also set Cookies on your device during a visit to one of our Websites. These sites will be
approved partners of ours.
How long do Cookies last?
Cookies can be placed either for an individual “session” or on a “persistent” basis.
“Session” Cookies are temporary and will expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave a website. Session Cookies allow a website
to recognize you and carry information as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website efficiently.
“Persistent Cookies” remain in the Cookie file of your browser even after you leave a website and after the browser is closed. These Cookies remain
valid until their set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). These Cookies allow a website to collect and analyze (on an anonymous basis) traffic and use of the website, monitor the system and improve operating performance. For example, they enable a website to recognize you on your return, remember your preferences and provide tailored services to you. For more information about Cookies, how they work, why they are so useful and how to disable them, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Below we describe the Cookies we deploy on our Websites, organised by the categories defined by the International Chamber of Commerce.
Here is a list of Cookies used by this Website by category as described above:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These Cookies are essential and help support security and basic functionality, as they enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these Cookies, services you’ve asked for (such as internet banking) can’t be provided. These Cookies don’t gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet. These Cookies can be disabled through your browser or device settings but to do so would prevent our Websites from working properly, e.g. we cannot guarantee your use or the security during your visit.
These Cookies collect information about how you use a website, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get error messages from certain pages. These Cookies don’t gather information that identifies you. Information collected by these Cookies is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works Performance Cookies are not used to target you with online advertising. You can disable them, but then the website owner will be unable to see how its websites are performing and make relevant improvements to enhance your browsing experience.
We use Google Analytics Cookies to obtain an overall view of user habits and volumes, and to help improve the overall experience on our Websites. Google Analytics is a third-party web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), which uses performance Cookies and targeting Cookies.

Third Party Sites
Third Party Advertising
When accessing any third-party/external sites that may be linked above, you will leave our Websites. These third party sites are not controlled or endorsed by BNY Mellon, and BNY Mellon is not responsible for the contents, operation or security of these sites.
Opting-out of Third Party Advertising
You have the ability to opt out of many third-party advertisers. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Websites or other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject Cookies when you opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at www.aboutads.info or the NAI’s website at www.networkadvertising.org.
