What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that contain a small amount of information that is downloaded on your device (e.g. computer, smartphone, electronic device which accesses the internet) when you visit a website or an application. Cookies are then sent back to the original website or application or to other websites or applications that recognize those cookies upon each subsequent visit (with some exceptions, such as for session cookies).
Cookies are one technology of tracking among others. Other tracking devices refer broadly to other technologies than small text files, such as a tracking pixel, that are used to recognize you.

There are three types (in terms of their purpose) of cookies that we use: Necessary Cookies, Behavioral Cookies and Advertising Cookies. These cookies perform different functions as explained below.
We use both first party and third-party cookies:

- Third party cookies are set by a domain which is different to the website you are visiting, an example of this is where cookies are placed on your device by NASDAQ when you share content from our Website on social media websites.
Cookies can be either deleted when you close your internet browser (“session cookies”) or persistent cookies. Details on how long these cookies last for are set out in the Cookie Settings.
