Cookies on

Cookies are small pieces of text stored on your computer when you visit a website. They are not programs and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses – instead, cookies act more like a passport, which the site checks and updates whenever you visit. Most websites which you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience. Their functions include verifying your identity for security purposes; determining the type of browser and settings you are using or allowing site owners and third-party advertisers to tailor content to your preferences. Cookies are managed by your browser. Each cookie is unique and contains some anonymous information such as a unique identifier, site name, digits and letters. It allows a website to remember your browsing preferences.

Types of cookies

Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies. The website uses both persistent and session cookies.

Session cookies
A session cookie is essential to ensure the correct functioning of the website and is used to manage registration/login and access to reserved features. Session cookies are stored temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.

Persistent cookies
Persistent cookies are saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and are not deleted when the browser is closed (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).

First party cookies
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (Trading 212) are called “first party cookies” and they can only be read by that site. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”.

Third party cookies
Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
