Cookie policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files sent to a web browser by a web server.

Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of each browsing session (typically when the web browser is closed).

Persistent cookies remain until the expiry date and time set by the web server (or otherwise manually deleted by the user).

1st party cookies originate from the same domain as the website being visited (in this case zurich.co.uk).

3rd party cookies originate from a domain that is different to the website being visited (for example this website uses cookies set by doubleclick.net and uk.sitestat.com).


How do Zurich use cookies?

Zurich make use of cookies in two ways:

  • By assigning visitors to our website(s) with a unique session identifier in the form of a randomly generated combination of characters. This allows us to identify unique browsers within and across multiple browsing sessions. We do this for a variety of reasons and the list below explains these in detail. It is important to note however that these cookies do not contain any personal information and cannot be used by themselves to identify individual users.
  • We also use cookies to store your website preferences, either explicit or implied. For example to ensure that you see content in your desired language.

We have grouped together the cookies we use according to their usage:
