CKGSB Americas’s Cookies Policy
CKGSB Americas’s Cookies Policy describes the cookies we use and explains why we use them.
It also explains how cookies enable the Website to function properly and why you may not be able to experience the full functionality of the Website if you disable their use.
What do I need to know about cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that’s stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
There are different types of cookies:
- First party cookies: These are set by the website you’re visiting. And only that website can read them. In addition, a website might use a separate company to analyze how people are using their site. And this separate company will set their own cookie to do this.
- Third party cookies: These are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting. Some CKGSB Americas web pages may also contain content from other sites like YouTube, which may set their own cookies. Also, if you share a link to a CKGSB Americas page, the service you share it on (e.g. Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser. CKGSB Americas has no control over third party cookies.
- Advertising cookies: Some websites use advertising networks to show you specially targeted adverts when you visit. These networks may also be able to track your browsing across different sites.
Session cookies: These are stored while you’re browsing. They get deleted from your device when you close your browser e.g. Chrome or Safari.
Persistent cookies: These are saved on your device. So they don’t get deleted when you close your browser. We use persistent cookies when we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, we use them to remember your preferences for the next time you visit.
We use different types of cookies for different things, such as:
- to give you a better, more personalized experience
- to understand how our websites are used
- to monitor how our advertisements perform.
Read on to find out more about the different kinds of cookie we use.

These help us understand how people are using our websites. For instance which pages people 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 a website works.
