This is the Cookies Policy (the 'Cookies Policy') for The Charter Trust (‘Trust’ ‘we’ ‘us’ ‘our’). Please read it carefully to ensure that you are willing to accept the cookies used by our Sites and the third-party services our Sites use.

What are Cookies?
Cookies are small ‘packets’ of data downloaded to your computer which communicate with websites to provide information to those who operate them. For example, they may help website operators improve your experience on their website or distinguish you from other users.
When you log into our Sites, a cookie is set which stores an alphanumeric identifier that enables the browser to keep you logged in until you log out. There are two versions of this cookie to signify how you logged in, which determines what can be accessed through your account page.
We also store cookies to help manage your experience on our Sites. This includes whether to load assets from our content delivery network, what landing page you signed up from, how long you have been a member and other tests we conduct in order to improve our Site.
All cookies set by us can be deleted from your device.
Third Party Cookies
When you visit our Sites, you are also making connections to various third-party websites, each with access to set and manage cookies of their own. We do not have access to any data contained within these cookies, nor can we manage these cookies.
Google Analytics is a persistent cookie which is stored on your computer and will remain installed even after you have left our Sites. You may have already downloaded Google Analytics from another website.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies in the following way:
In Internet Explorer, you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector
In Firefox, you can adjust your cookies setting by clicking “Tools”, “Options” and “Privacy”.
In Google Chrome, you can disable all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options” and “Under the Bonnet”, then selecting “Content Settings”.
Refusing all cookies will prevent you from accessing our Sites correctly or remembering who you are. Blocking third party cookies should not interrupt your experience on the Website.
