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.
You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:
|Cookie type||Purpose||More information|
|beonscreen||Managing your account||The session cookie we set allows us to identify your account when you login to the site. Without this cookie we can't distinguish between each member and therefore the website cannot function properly. It only lasts on your device for 2 hours at a time and is removed when you close your browser. The cookie is encrypted so the information stored can only be read by beonscreen.|
|XSRF-TOKEN||Protecting your data||We use a security cookie to authenticate user data, prevent fraudulent use of data forms and protect user data from unauthorised parties. It only lasts on your device for 2 hours at a time and is removed when you close your browser.|
|Google analytics||Website visit analysis||Google Analytics is Google's free web analytics tool that mainly helps us to understand how our members engage with our site. It sets a few cookies with names like ‘__utma’ and ‘__utmz’ to collect information anonymously and report website trends without identifying individual visitors. Learn more about Analytics cookies and privacy information.|
|Adverts||Keeping beonscreen free to our members||The advertising platform we use stores cookies to be able to track if someone clicks through from beonscreen to an advertiser's website. This lets them track beonscreen's referals which in turn helps to keep the website free to use for our 250,000 members.|
Except for essential cookies, all cookies will expire after approximately 30 days.
