Our content policy includes the following:
Cookies are a kind of short term memory for the web. They are stored in your browser and enable a site to 'remember' little bits of information between pages or visits. They are widely used to make the web experience more personal, which is generally seen as a positive thing. However some cookies collect data across many websites, creating 'behavioural profiles' of people. By requiring websites to inform and obtain consent from visitors it aims to give web users more control over their online privacy.
“Session cookies” are downloaded to your computer for a short period of time whilst you browse a particular website; these cookies might allow you to navigate better between pages or allow websites to remember the preferences you select. “Persistent cookies” can be used to help websites remember you as a returning visitor or ensure the online adverts you receive are more relevant to your interests. We use both session cookies and persistent cookies to perform a number of different purposes across our website.
ClearScreen uses necessary cookies to make the site work. ClearScreen uses optional analytics cookies to help improve it. ClearScreen will not set optional cookies unless you enable them. Using our cookie consent tool will set a cookie on your device to remember your preferences.

In certain cases, some of these cookies are managed by third parties such as Google Analytics. Performance cookies are valid for different periods of time and they can be deleted at any stage using your browser settings.
