Websites must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you.
The tables below explains what cookies we use on our website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or another type of cookie e.g. “performance” cookies. We also state in the tables whether a cookie is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. The difference is that:
- Persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit the website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a “persistent cookie” is used on a website to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that website.
- Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Some of the cookies listed below are those set by our own website when you visit www.mercia.co.uk. However, we also have cookies on our website that are set by third parties – not Mercia Asset Management. To have Vimeo videos embedded on our website, Vimeo places cookies under the domain player.vimeo.com.
