When visitors access the SIE website, their computers will automatically be issued with ‘cookies’. Cookies are text files which identify users’ computers to SIE‘s server. The website then creates “session” cookies to store some of the preferences of users moving around the website. Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used.

SIE‘s website uses third-party cookies and Google Analytics to measure use of the website and track promotional activity. This helps to determine what is popular and can influence future content and development. SIE does not combine data collected about web activity with other personally identifying information. The cookies are deleted at the end of each session and identifying information is not retained.

Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time.
