Third party cookies

All of the cookies described so far in this policy are “first party cookies”, which means they are set and controlled by Factory 42. Occasionally, third parties may set cookies on our Website which we do not control. These are called “third party cookies”. This will happen where, for example, we have included embedded content on some pages of our Website. When you visit a page with embedded content, the third party service provider may set its own cookies on your web browser.

Please note that we do not control the use of these cookies and cannot access them. Cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. You should therefore check the third party websites for more information about these cookies.

If you do not want to accept cookies, you can change your browser settings so that cookies are not accepted. You can learn more about how to block cookies by visiting http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. Please note that if you block cookies completely, many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all.
