We recommend that you leave cookies turned on.

Please bear in mind that removing or blocking cookies can negatively impact your user experience and parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible.

YOUR IP INFORMATION

When you log on to our website, your IP (Internet Protocol) address registers on our servers. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you. We use this information only to monitor traffic on our website.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Our website uses cookies, like most sites do, to help provide you the best experience we can. A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time.

FIRST-PARTY COOKIES

First-party cookies are placed by us and are used to allow you to use the website and its features and to assist in analytics activities.

THIRD-PARTY COOKIES

Our website, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties. Those third parties may place their cookies on your device and use them to recognize your device when you visit our website. These third parties collect and use this information pursuant to their own privacy policies. Third-party cookies enable certain features or functionalities to be provided on the website (i.e. an embedded YouTube video).

HOW ARE COOKIES USED FOR ADVERTISING PURPOSES?

Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated audit data, research, and performance reporting for advertisers. Pixels enable us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you and know when certain ads have been shown to you. Since your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Although we do not use cookies to create a profile of your browsing behaviour on third-party sites, we do use aggregate data from third parties to show you relevant, interest-based advertising. We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers. You can opt out of off-site and third-party-informed advertising by adjusting your cookie settings. Opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit, but, instead, opting out will result in the ads you see not being matched to your interests. This implies that the ad(s) you see will not be matched to your interests by those specific cookies.

HOW DO I REJECT AND DELETE COOKIES?

You can choose to reject or block all or specific types of cookies set by virtue of your visit to Royal Literary Fund’s website by clicking on the cookie preferences on our website(s). You can change your preferences for this website and/or the websites of any third-party suppliers by changing your browser settings. Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies. Therefore, if you do not wish cookies to be used, you may need to actively delete or block the cookies. If you reject the use of cookies, you will still be able to visit our website but some of the functions may not work correctly. You may also visit www.allaboutcookies.org for details on how to delete or reject cookies and for further information on cookies generally. By using our website without deleting or rejecting some or all cookies, you agree that we can place those cookies that you have not deleted or rejected on your device.
