How do we use Cookies and other Tracking Technologies?

The information your browser sends to one of Compass Lexecon’s websites is used for authentication and identification of your session and allows Compass Lexecon to display the correct information on the website. Compass Lexecon matches the cookie against your details so it can distinguish you from other users as you browse the site, which helps it to provide you with a good user experience. Most web browsers enable you to erase cookies, block cookies, receive a warning before a cookie is stored on your device or disable cookies. By clicking the “Use necessary cookies only” button on the cookies notice that appears on our website, you agree to our use of only the necessary cookies described in our cookie policy. Some functionality of the site may be affected.

Cookie retention: This website uses cookies which are persistent and non-persistent (session-based). While many of the cookies used on this website only last for the duration of your use of this website (session-based cookies), other cookies are persistent, i.e., stay in one of your browser’s subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them.

What types of Cookies may be used?

First party cookies – First party cookies are set by the Compass Lexecon website you are visiting and they can only be read by Compass Lexecon.

Session cookies – Session cookies are used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server’s pages. These are temporary cookie files, which are erased when you close your browser, and when you restart your browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognize you. You will have to log back in (if login is required) or select your preferences/themes again if the website uses these features. A new session cookie will be generated, which will store your browsing information and will be active until you leave the site and close your browser.

Persistent cookies – Persistent cookies are employed to store user preferences. These files stay in one of your browser’s subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie’s file. For Information on session and persistent cookies, see here.

Third party cookies – Third party cookies are set by a different organization to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company that will set its own cookies to perform this service (for example, as described below, this website uses Google Analytics).
