The Notice explains how CNA uses cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit our website at (the “Website“).

Please take the time to read this Notice carefully. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us via [email protected].

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or use a mobile application. Cookies are widely used by website or mobile application owners in order to make their websites or mobile applications work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies have many different features, such as allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience.

Cookies set by the website publisher (in this case, CNA) are called “first party cookies“. Cookies set by parties other than the website are called “third party cookies“. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer or mobile device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

How long do cookies last?

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods. Some cookies are ‘session cookies’, which means they only exist when your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser or quit the app. Other cookies are ‘persistent cookies‘, meaning they survive after your browser or app is closed and can be used by websites or apps to recognize your computer when you re-open your browser or app later. The length of the cookies used on our Website is explained in more detail in the table below.

Why do we use cookies?

When you visit our Website, we may place the following types of cookies:

Types of Cookie

Essential websites cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas when you need to authenticate.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”).  These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Website. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to improve site performance. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

What about Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Our Website may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations. All the Flash Cookies we use are listed in the list displayed in our cookie popup, available here:
Cookie consent

If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

How can I control cookies?
