What is a Cookie?
A Cookie is a small file placed on your device when you visit certain websites. Cookies provide a way for the Websites to recognise users and keep track of the users’ preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preference) over a period of time, so users don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever they come back to the websites. Cookies perform essential functions to improve a user’s browsing experience.
You do not need to have Cookies turned on to visit most of our Websites. However, having Cookies turned on should allow for a better, personalised experience, and is required for certain parts of the Websites’ functionality. Consequently, blocking all or certain Cookies may impact your experience of our Websites and certain services or features thereof may not be available to you.
Who sets Cookies?
Cookies may be set on our by our Websites by us or by third parties providing certain services to us such as analytics and advertising services. Cookies may also be set by another website prior to or during your visit to our Websites.
These are known as ‘first party’ and ‘third party’ Cookies.
First party Cookies belong to the website domain that appears in the browser address bar.
How long do Cookies last?
Cookies can be placed either for an individual “session” or on a “persistent” basis.
“Session” Cookies are temporary and will expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave a website. Session Cookies allow a website to recognize you and carry information as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website efficiently.
“Persistent Cookies” remain in the Cookie file of your browser even after you leave a website and after the browser is closed. These Cookies remain valid until their set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). These Cookies allow a website to collect and analyze (on an aggregated basis) traffic and use of the website, monitor the system and improve operating performance. For example, they enable a website to recognize you on your return, remember your preferences and provide tailored services to you. For more information about Cookies, how they work, why they are so useful and how to disable them, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
The duration of the Cookies we use on our website is specified in the below cookie list.
Cookies on our Websites
Below we describe the Cookies we deploy on our Websites, organised by the categories defined by the International Chamber of Commerce. This list (together with the rest of this notice) is reviewed on a regular basis and is subject to change from time to time.
We will not set any cookies other than those that are Strictly Necessary without your consent. When we add new Third Party cookies we will seek your consent again, and we will always ask you to refresh your consent every 180 days.
We use Google Analytics Cookies to obtain an overall view of user habits and volumes, and to help improve the overall experience on our Websites.

The information generated by these Cookies about your use of our Websites (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google Inc. on servers in the United States.
Third party sites
Third party advertising
When accessing any third-party/external sites that may be linked above, you will leave our Websites. These third party sites are not controlled or endorsed by BNY Mellon, and BNY Mellon is not responsible for the contents, operation or security of these sites.
Opting-out of third party advertising
You have the ability to opt out of many third-party advertisers. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Websites or other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject Cookies when you opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at www.aboutads.info or the NAI’s website at www.networkadvertising.org.
