What are ‘cookies’?

‘Cookies’ are text files that are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device and to make the site work better for you. They also help IBPA understand how people use the website.

What does IBPA use cookies for?

IBPA uses first party cookies for analytical purposes and third-party cookies when embedded videos are played from YouTube.
IBPA uses ‘analytics’ cookies to help make our website better for those who visit it regularly. Analytics cookies help to establish what users like and do not like and as well as how we can improve user experience. Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not they have visited the site before. Their browser will tell us if they have these cookies, and if not, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.
IBPA embeds videos from our official YouTube channel using YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode. This mode will set cookies on your computer after you click on the YouTube video player. To find out more please visit YouTube’s embedding videos information page.

How do I turn cookies off?

Users can choose to restrict or block cookies set by us, or any other website. This can be done through your browser settings or by following the third party’s opt-out options, accessible via their respective websites.
