Subdomains are as follows:


What Is A Cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of data which are downloaded to your device when you visit a Site. Cookies are then sent back to the originating Site on each subsequent visit, or to another Site that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a Site to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at:

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently remembering your preferences, and generally improve your website experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

Most Sites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that Site to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies may be set by the Site you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other Sites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third-party cookies’).

Which Cookies Are Being used On This Site?

We use first party cookies. We use cookies in order to make this Site easier to use, to support the provision of information and functionality to you, as well as to provide us with data about how this Site is used so that we can make sure it is as up to date, relevant and error free as we can.

To the extent any Personal Data is collected through cookies, the ROI INTO Data Privacy Notice or NI INTO Data Privacy Notice applies and compliments this Cookie Policy.

We use only use first party cookies which fall into the ‘strictly necessary’ category. Your consent is not required for us to use this type of cookie.

Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features and/or services. Without these absolutely necessary cookies, the Site will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the Site with certain services or features. Under the GDPR, your consent for the use of such cookies is not required. This is the only type of cookie used on INTO’s websites.
