You can change your mind at any time, by adjusting your browser settings.
What are “cookies”?
When you browse our website, or use our apps, we and our partners store some data on your computer or phone, and collect some information from your device.
We’ll use the term “cookie” throughout this document to cover all of these.
We place our own cookies, and enable our partners to place their own cookies, on your devices, for the reasons below.
Some of these cookies disappear when you close your browser, and others last for a longer period of time. We use longer-lasting cookies when we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session; for example, to remember your preferences for the next time you visit.
Where we enable our partners to place cookies, these partners will see some information about you (such as your Internet address), and they may use the information they collect, along with other information they already have, to create profiles for advertising purposes.
Cookies which are essential for us to provide our websites to you
These cookies are necessary, and let you move around the website and support all our essential features like video playback.
They’re not for gathering information, remembering your preferences, or advertising to you.
As these cookies are essential, we are not asking for your consent. If you disable these cookies, you might not be able to use our website properly, and we may not be able to provide some services to you.
Cookies which are not essential but help us give you a better experience
Cookies which are not essential but help us improve our websites and apps
They keep track of the pages you visit and any errors you come across, for example.
We only use that information to improve how our website works and understand the interests of our users.
Cookies which are not essential and which are used for advertising purposes
Neas has added tracking code from each of these partners to its website. When you load the page containing this tracking code, it tells the relevant partner which page you have loaded, along with some information about you, such as your IP address. Our partners collect this information whether you are a registered user of their service or not, and whether you are signed in to their service or not.
We use this to create groups of people who have accessed different pages on our website, and we target advertising on our partners’ sites to those groups. So, for example, if you have visited a page about working at Neas, we might use this information to show you adverts on Facebook for vacant positions.
These cookies use limit the number of times you see an advertisement, as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign.
The advertisers we work with include:
|Name||What information we share or they obtain||Opting out of targeted advertising via the site/service||Privacy notice||Cookie notice|
How can I block cookies?

You may delete cookies stored in your browser at any time. Information stored in such cookies will be removed from your device.
There is more information about this on www.aboutcookies.org which gives instructions on how you can manage cookies on different browsers.
You can normally turn off pixel tags too by switching off cookies in your browser. There are also browser add-ons and extensions that specifically block web beacons.
To avoid pixel tags in emails, you can turn off the automatic loading of remote images in your email service. However, if you choose to load images, you would also load any pixel tags in the email.
You could also use your browser’s “Private Browsing” mode. You will still get the benefit of cookies for the duration of your browsing, but they will be deleted automatically when you close your browser.
