What are cookies?

Like the vast majority of other websites, we use ‘cookies’ in order to provide you with the best possible experience when you visit it. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit a web page. They can have many purposes, and among other things may be used to store your preferences, keep you logged into a website, or to collect visitor statistics – e.g. finding out how many users viewed the site and the pages they accessed.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting, or by third parties who provide content that is embedded upon the site – such as YouTube videos. Some cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser, others remain for longer periods – e.g. to retain any website preferences you have set on previous occasions.

None of the cookies stored by rclglobal.co.uk contain personally identifying information, and we do not use any cookies for the purposes of targeted advertising. By visiting the rclglobal.co.uk website you consent to cookies being stored on your computer or device.
