What are cookies?
Single session Cookie
A single session cookie is deleted when you close the website. A single session cookie may allow a website to remember data as you navigate the site, but the cookie will be removed when you log out or close the web page or browser. For example, a single session cookie may be used to allow features such as shopping carts to remember if you have added an item to your cart while you search for other items you wish to purchase on the website.
A persistent cookie remembers a user’s visit for a specific period of time. It remains stored on your device or Internet browser for that time (it could be minutes, days or months) after you log out or close your browser. For example, persistent cookies may be used to store whether you have selected certain preferences on a website (such as language selection).
How do Cookies work on the NGC website?
NGC uses both single-session and persistent cookies. Cookies and other similar technologies are used by NGC for a variety of reasons. Cookies are sometimes necessary for the website to function properly and allow features such as shopping carts and secure logins to work. Cookies allow us to count visitors to the website and learn how the website and its features are being used, allowing us to continually improve the user experience. Cookies can also allow the content of a website to be tailored to each user’s preferences. For details on the cookies used on this website by NGC, please see below.
The cookies that may be used on this website by NGC can be categorized as follows:
Strictly necessary or essential cookies
These cookies allow a website to remember the options you select (including user role authentication, acceptance disclaimer and language), your username if relevant and any customization you make (such as font size) or personalization options as part of your online experience. They may also be used to provide certain services that you can use, such as video content or allowing you to leave comments on a blog.
Analytics – Performance cookies
These cookies are used to manage and improve the operation of the website and can help identify issues you may have with the use of online services on the site. These cookies may be used to facilitate online surveys, record visitor numbers and other web analytics metrics. These cookies are not used to target you with online advertising. Without these cookies NGC would have limited information about how the website is performing and there would be less opportunity to make relevant improvements to the browsing experience. Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics data retention periods are set at 25 months as a standard.

Anonymized data may be shared with third parties.
Third Party Targeting And Advertising Cookies
These cookies enable tracking of browsing habits and activities to enable the display of personalized marketing content by third parties. Third-party cookies and similar technologies, such as pixels, allow analytics providers, ad networks, social media providers, and advertisers to track online activity over time for such purposes as behavioral advertising, analytics, and market research. Personally identifiable information may be collected and used to display targeted advertising.
Marketing, e-mail cookies
In addition to the cookies used on the website, cookies and similar technologies are used in emails.
