The ETF uses a number of its own cookies to provide web services to you and other users. The ETF also uses a number of third party cookies – meaning they are set by the organisation that provides the service – to offer content and services, such as video, images, subscriptions and Twitter or Facebook capabilities on its web pages. A final category of cookies used on the ETF web pages by third party providers, such as Google, allows the ETF to anonymously measure how popular its web pages and services are, and how users interact with the site.
Some cookies are important for the seamless delivery and smooth running of ETF web services, while others allow the ETF to anonymously measure how successful its content is among web users. This data evaluation, also known as ‘analytics’, helps the ETF to plan future content and digital services that benefit its affiliates and worldwide audience.
