Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy explains when and why cookies are used by Apiary Financial on our website and related services, including emails, newsletters and partner websites, that we do not own or operate, but with whom we have agreements.  We reserve the right to update this policy at any time.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file sent to your browser or device by a website that you visit.  Your browser or device holds these cookies and makes them available every time you visit a site again so that it can recognize you and remember important information about you, for example, your preferred language.

There are two types of cookies – session cookies and persistent cookies

Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in your browser or device only until you leave the site.  When the browser closes, the cookie is permanently deleted.

Persistent cookies remain in your browser until you delete them, or they reach their expiry date.  These Cookies may, for example, be used to remember your preferences when you visit a website, recognise you upon your return and enhance your experience.  For example, a persistent cookie can remember the currency you have selected for a particular website.  If you reject a persistent cookie, you may still use the website, but you may experience limitations in website functionality.
