Our Cookies Policy


A cookie is a small file of information that is stored on your computer or mobile device. The majority of websites will use cookies to improve your user experience by allowing that website to ‘remember’ you, either during your visit (by using ‘session’ cookies) for repeat visits (by using a ‘persistent’ cookie). They will also allow us to improve our website.



There are different kinds of cookies that do different jobs. Some include:


Session cookies, which are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.


Persistent cookies, which are saved on your computer for a fixed period and are not deleted when the browser is closed. Websites may use these cookies so that they can know who you are for more than one browsing session. They store the user’s preferences, so that they are remembered for the next visit.


First party cookies, which are set by the website you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.


Third party cookies, which are set by an organisation that is different from the owner of the website you are visiting e.g. a website might use a third party analytics company who will set their own cookie to perform this service. The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from other websites who may set their own cookies.


Performance cookies, which count the number of users that visit the website, and see how users move around our website when they are using it.




By using, and continuing to use the IFC website, you consent to the IFC to using and storing cookies on your computer. If you do not wish to have the IFC store cookies, you can allow your browser to block some, or all cookies from being stored on you computer or mobile device. This can be done by changing your browser settings. (For mobile devices, you may have to refer to the operating guide for the device, the manufacturer’s website or your network provider.)
