Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and allows us to improve our site. By continuing to browse the site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

We may use the following cookies:

  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website 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 our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Cookie Permission Popup Voice This cookie is used to control the website’s cookie permission popup. Initially, the cookie is set to active to display the cookie notice pop up when visiting the website. However, when a user clicks “accept”, the cookie is deactivated, and the cookie pop up notice will not be displayed to the user again, unless their cache has been cleared, in which case, the above process will need to be repeated.
HttpOnly Cookie Flag HttpOnly Using the HttpOnly flag when generating a cookie helps mitigate the risk of client-side script accessing the protected cookie (if the browser supports it). RIf the HttpOnly flag (optional) is included in the HTTP response header, the cookie cannot be accessed through client-side script (again if the browser supports this flag). As a result, even if a cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw exists, and a user accidentally accesses a link that exploits this flaw, the browser (primarily Internet Explorer) will not reveal the cookie to a third party.
Secure Cookie Flag Secure Cookie The secure flag is an option that can be set by the application server when sending a new cookie to the user within an HTTP Response. The purpose of the secure flag is to prevent cookies from being observed by unauthorized parties due to the transmission of a cookie in clear text. The secure flag is an option that can be set by the application server when sending a new cookie to the user within an HTTP Response. The purpose of the secure flag is to prevent cookies from being observed by unauthorized parties due to the transmission of a cookie in clear text.

To accomplish this goal, browsers which support the secure flag will only send cookies with the secure flag when the request is going to a HTTPS page. Said in another way, the browser will not send a cookie with the secure flag set over an unencrypted HTTP request.

By setting the secure flag, the browser will prevent the transmission of a cookie over an unencrypted channel.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.

Email campaigns

We use single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in our email campaigns. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us to recognize when the recipient has opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each recipients email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to understand how an email campaign performed and what actions recipients took. You may opt out of such campaigns at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link or contacting info.uk@riaabg.com.

Retention period

Except for essential cookies, all cookies will expire after 24 months.

This Cookies Policy is and will be treated as part of our Terms of Use and is automatically incorporated therein.
