Your privacy and trust are important to us. This Statement explains how London Stock Exchange Group plc, LCH Limited and other companies within the London Stock Exchange Group (“LSEG", “we”, “us” or “our”) uses cookies and similar or related technologies to recognise you when you use our products, services, websites, digital properties, platforms, software and applications including mobile applications (we call these our “Services”).

How we use cookies

LSEG uses cookies and similar technologies to allow for the proper functioning of our Services, store and manage user preferences, deliver targeted advertising, engage in marketing activities, enable personalised content, and gather, analyse and report on analytic and usage data. The use of cookies may occur across websites and apps through which information is collected about your online use of our Services. More information about how we use cookies is set out below.

Types of cookies and why we use them

Cookies are typically assigned to one of five categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, targeting cookies and social media cookies. Some cookies may fulfil more than one purpose.

Strictly necessary cookies:

These cookies are necessary for websites to function and cannot be switched off through the applicable cookie preference centre. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms.

Performance cookies: 

These cookies collect information, including analytics, about how you use our Services. Information collected includes, for example, the Internet browsers and operating systems used, the domain name of the website previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, actions taken, and pages viewed. These cookies may be used to record or track your interaction and/or use of our web and/or mobile sites, platforms and/or digital properties. Performance cookies help us measure the activity on our Services, create reports and statistics about the performance of our Services, improve the user-friendliness of the Services and improve the quality of our Services. These types of cookies typically stay active on your computer until they are deleted or until the cookies expire (as applicable).

Functional cookies:

These cookies allow the website to remember information about you (e.g. your username or ID,) and the choices you make (e.g. your language preference, or the area or region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personalised features or content to you. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts, and other customisable parts of web pages. They may also be used to provide Services you have asked for, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. If you do not allow these cookies or if you toggle these cookies off, then some or all of these Services may not function properly. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting cookies

These cookies track browsing habits (on and off of our websites and digital properties) and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an ad and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations, such as advertisers and LSEG’s advertising partners, who might use it with information about how you use other websites, including identifying shared interests and behaviours across groups of users who visit our (and other) websites. In connection with this type of cookies, your activities may be tracked or reviewed using identifiers (e.g. a cookie ID). These types of cookies will typically stay on your computer until they are deleted or until they expire (if applicable).

Social media cookies:

These cookies are set by third-party social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks and to log-in to, and share information with, LSEG’s Services.

Some of our Services may include social networking features, such as the Facebook® “Like” button and widgets, “Share” buttons, and interactive mini-programs. Additionally, you may choose to use your own social networking logins from, for example, Facebook or LinkedIn®, to log into some of our Services. If you choose to connect to our Services using a social networking or similar service, we may receive and store authentication information from that social media service to enable you to log in and other information that you may choose to share when you connect with these Services. These Services may collect information such as the web pages you visited and IP addresses for various purposes and may set cookies to enable features to function properly.
