Cookie Policy

The website ("Website"), which is operated by Finning (UK) Ltd and its group of companies (collectively, “Finning”), uses "cookies", a technology that installs information on a user's computer for various purposes related to operation of the Website, as described in this section. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the Website for users. Websites must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you. If you do not wish to allow cookies, please disable them in your browser settings. Disabling cookies may affect your experience of the Website. If you do not accept cookies when prompted to do so you will not be able to use our Website.

Below we explain what cookies we use on our Website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or are some other type of cookie, for example "performance" cookies. We also state whether a cookie is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. The difference is that:

  • Persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit the website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a "persistent cookie" is used on a website to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that website.
  • Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
