Cookies are data files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to the device or browser you use when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website which recognises that cookie.
Please note that we can also collect information about Platform usage from data contained in “log files” from third parties. Log files are not cookies; they do not contain any personal data; and they are not used to identify your personal use of the Platform. When you request any web page from the Platform, web servers automatically obtain your domain name and internet protocol address (usually referred to as an “IP address”), but they reveal nothing personal about you and that data is only used to examine Platform traffic in aggregate, to investigate abuse of the Platform and its users, and/or to cooperate with law enforcement. Such data is not disseminated to third parties, except in aggregate.
Firstly, we explain what each type is and then, in the table below, we have stated which types we actually use.
In general, there are four different types of cookie.
We have summarized information about the actual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the following table:
|Where does the cookie originate?||Necessary||Performance||Functional||Targeting|
Please note that configuring your computer and/or mobile browser to reject ‘necessary’, ‘performance’ or ‘functional’ cookies may severely impact your experience on The Money Platform website and some parts of the Platform will not function at all.

These settings are normally accessed via the ‘settings’, 'preferences' or 'options' menu of the browser you are using, but you could also look for a ‘help’ function or contact the browser provider. If you are unsure as to how to manage your cookies, please see the following links to view instructions for the most commonly used web browsers:
