What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile when you visit a website. They are widely used by website owners to make their websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case Berkely) are called ‘first-party cookies’ and cookies set by anyone other than the owner are called ‘third-party cookies’. Third-party cookies enable third-party features to be provided on or through the website such as advertising or interactive content. The parties that set third-party cookies recognise your computer when it visits the website and when it visits certain other websites.
We use first and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience of our website. Third parties serve cookies through our website for advertising, analytics, and other purposes.
