UCLB: Cookie Policy

Welcome to www.uclb.com (our Website).

UCL Business Ltd (“we, our”, “us”) want you to have the best experience possible when using our Website. Our Website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our Website and to provide you with a good experience when you visit our Website.

Our Website will ask for your permission before using cookies. By accepting the permission notice and continuing to use our Website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies as described in this policy.

Cookies are small text files which are stored on your browser or the hard drive of your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, and to provide information to the owners of the website.

There are a number of different types of cookies, which we may use:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our service. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our service, or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our service when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our service works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to access our service. This enables us to personalise our content for you, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your use of our service, the things you have clicked on, and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our service and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies on our Website. These cookies are likely to be analytical/ performance cookies and targeting cookies. We have no control over these third party cookies – it is the external provider who will determine what type of information is stored and how it is used.
