Cookies policy

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term "cookies" in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information - for example, if you click to "remember me" when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won't collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user's general location.

Please note: If you do disable our cookies you may find that certain sections of our website do not work. For example, you may have difficulties logging in, staying logged in or viewing articles.

What sort of cookies does this site use?
Generally, our cookies perform up to four different functions:

1. Essential cookies
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to. These cookies don't need consent.

2. Performance Cookies
We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.

3. Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences - such as if you ask us to save your username and/or password. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences. We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or load a CV or buy tickets online.

4. Behaviourally Targeted Advertising Cookies
Our advertisers use cookies to serve you with advertisements that we believe are relevant to you and your interests. For example, if you read a number of articles on one particular topic on ours or on other sites, the advertiser might infer that you are interested in this topic and serve you with the relevant advertisements. You might see these advertisements on this website and on other sites that you visit. We do not tell our advertisers who you are.

Does anyone else use cookies on Venture Marketing Group websites?
Advertisers sometimes use their own cookies to provide you with targeted advertising. For example, advertisers may use a profile they have built on sites that you have previously visited to present you with more relevant advertisements during your visit to this particular website.

We believe that it is useful to our users to see advertisements that are more relevant to their interests. If you are based in the European Union and would like to learn more about how advertisers use these types of cookies or to choose not to receive them, please visit If you are based in the United States and would like to learn more, please visit

We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the four categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.

Can a website user block cookies?
As we've explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of our websites. The first time you accessed our website in May 2012, you should have seen an overlay which explained that by continuing to access our site, you are consenting to our use of cookies. Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of our website do not work properly More detail on how businesses use cookies is available at This document was last updated on 29th May 2012.

How to manage cookies
As we explain in our Cookie Policy, cookies help you to get the most out of our websites.

How to disable behaviourally targeted advertising cookies
If you are concerned about behaviourally targeted advertising cookies (which serve you advertisements based on your use of ours and other websites), users based in the European Union can visit and users based in the US can visit to opt out of the third party cookies. The above websites are not Venture Marketing Group websites and we are not responsible for their content.
