Like many other organisations, we use cookies to make our website safer, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your 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.

You can find more information about cookies and how to refuse them on the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s website.

what cookies we use

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies. We use CookieConsent to remember your cookie preferences. We also use csrftoken, an Instagram cookie to help prevent cross-site request forgery attacks.

Performance cookies

These cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in.

Statistics cookies

These cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously. We use _ga_gat and _gid, which are Google Analytics cookies that generate statistical data on how the visitor uses the website. We also use vuid, a Vimeo cookie that collects data on the user’s visits to the website.

Marketing cookies

Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers.

Types of cookies

Some cookies are first party cookies (served directly by our website) while others are third party cookies (served by other providers usually for analytics or advertising purposes).

“Session cookies” are removed automatically once you close your browser. “Persistent cookies” have an expiry date.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Embedded content

We embed content from other sites, such as YouTube videos, Instagram posts, Twitter feed or Facebook likes, and you may receive cookies delivered from these websites. Borne does not govern the publication of third-party cookies. You should check the relevant cookies and privacy statements of these third parties to find out more.
