We are strongly committed to issues of privacy. This page contains information about our use of cookies on the Site.

The use of cookies is now commonplace on many websites. Control Risks uses cookies through our use of Google Analytics on the Site, to track user interaction with the Site. We do this so we can identify which content is of greatest interest to users, in order to allow us to deliver more meaningful content in the future. Tracking usage of the Site through Google Analytics entails placing small digital files on your device (for example, computer or mobile phone). These include small files known as “cookies”. They cannot be used to identify you personally. This information includes the number of visitors to the Site, how visitors have reached the Site from and the pages that they visited within the Site.

You can visit the Site and download the majority of our online content without telling us who you are or giving us any information to identify yourself.

We have conducted a comprehensive audit of the cookies that are downloaded on to users machines when using the Site:
