Cookie Policy


We use cookies to improve the experience of using the CET website. Cookies help provide capabilities such as remembering your logged in status and analysis of site usage to improve your experience. Most cookies that we use are ‘session’ cookies and only exist for the time that you are using our site.

We also track cookies anonymously to fuel our site analytics and learn how to improve your user experience, and to deliver content, including advertisements, relevant to your interests on third-party sites. We do not track you on any unaffiliated websites or communications. Our privacy policy is detailed here.

Browser Settings and Cookies

We also use technology – such as Google Analytics – that uses Internet Protocol (IP) information exchanges during the course of normal web activity combined with data-enhancement technology to get detailed analytics information.

Advertising on the web

On unaffiliated sites, CET displays interest-based advertising using the information you make available to us when you interact with our sites, content, or services. Interest-based ads, also sometimes referred to as personalised or targeted ads, are displayed to you based on information from activities such as purchasing on our sites, use of devices, apps or software, visiting sites that contain CET content or ads, or using our payment services.

Like other online ad networks, we use cookies, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies (collectively, “cookies”). Cookies enable us to learn about what ads you see, what ads you click, and other actions you take on our sites and other sites.

This allows us to provide you with more useful and relevant ads. We do not associate your interaction with unaffiliated sites with your identity in providing you with interest-based ads. We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites that display our interest-based ads.
