Only Cookies that are strictly necessary for the Barclays Reporting websites to operate are downloaded to your computer or mobile device.
What are Cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which your computer or mobile device downloads when you visit a website. When you return to websites – or visit other websites that use the same cookies – they recognise these cookies and therefore your browsing device.
The type of Cookies used on most websites can generally be put into 1 of 4 categories: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality and Targeting. Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Cookies can be:
- Transient (or per-session) Cookies – these only exist for your site visit and are deleted on exit. They recognise you as you move between pages, for example, recording items added to an online shopping basket. These Cookies also help maintain security.
- Persistent (or permanent) Cookies – these stay on your machine until expiry or deletion. Many are built with automatic deletion dates to help ensure your hard drive doesn’t get overloaded. These Cookies often store and re-enter your log-in information, so you don’t need to remember membership details.
The Barclays Reporting websites use Transient Cookies.
Internet Cookies are common and do not harm your system – they just store or gather site information.
The Barclays Reporting websites use one Cookie (‘SESSID’) to allow the sites to remember what pages and documents have been placed in the sites’ print basket and download manager.
As we only use strictly necessary Cookies on the Reporting websites and as this category of Cookies is essential for the functioning of the websites, these Cookies cannot be disabled.
In the future, if we intend to use any of the other Cookie categories, we will let you know in order for us to gain your preference. We may update this policy from time to time so please review this page regularly.
