Cookies and our policy on the information we collect from your visit.
What are Cookies anyway?
Cookies are small, often encrypted text files, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser then sends these cookies back to the website or application on each subsequent visit so that they can recognise you and remember things like personalised details or user preferences. They are referred to as 'session' or 'persistent' cookies depending on how they are used and our website uses both of these:
- Session cookies: These only last for your online session and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.
- Persistent cookies: These stay on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last for the period of time specified in the cookie. These persistent cookies are activated each time you visit the site where the cookie was generated.
- We also use a similar service from Advanced Web Statistics. This is also used for producing web analytics to help us understand how users use the site.
None of the cookies used on our website collect personally identifiable information about you nor does CLEAR pass your information to third parties.

Here, you will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer (including those from this visit) as well as more general information about cookies. For information on how to do this on your mobile device you will need to refer to its user guide.
