What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a site. They are used to help websites remember who you are, tailor content to you and track visitor trends, but cannot be used by themselves to identify you or your personal data.

The Website uses two kinds of cookies:

  1. Session cookies: these are cookies that expire at the end of browser sessions. They live on users computers only as long as users browse through the Website. They are ASP.NET cookies and their purpose is to allow the Website to link the actions of a user while browsing. They are encrypted, do not store users' identifiable information on them and they are essential to help you navigate the site.
  2. Third party analytics cookies: these are cookies created by parties other than Turner & Townsend that are stored permanently (or until deletion) on a visitor’s computer. They allow the actions of users across the Website to be remembered. They are then used by the third party to generate their reports accordingly (i.e. to identify whether users are new or returning, their origin, and what pages they visited).

We have the following third party cookies on our website:

  • Google Analytics: This cookie is used to remember what individual users do on the Website and record it in an aggregated manner. Access to this information helps Turner & Townsend understand the collective usage of the Website in order to improve it. The information collected via this cookie is not personally identifiable. The Google Analytics cookie belongs to Google LLC and has its own privacy policy associated to it.
  • LinkedIn: This cookie collects metadata such as IP address information, timestamps and page views. This helps us measure how effective our LinkedIn marketing campaigns are, but do not provide personally identifiable information. The LinkedIn cookie belongs to LinkedIn Corporation if you reside in the US and LinkedIn Ireland U.C. if you reside elsewhere, and has its own privacy policy associated to it.
