Disabling and managing cookies
Where the organisation setting the cookie provides an automated disabling tool in respect of its cookie(s) we list below the name of that organisation, the category of cookies it sets, together with a link to its automated disabling tool. In all other cases, we list the names of the cookies themselves and their source at the date of this Cookie Notification, so that you can easily identify and disable them through your browser controls.
Some browsers make it possible for you to signal that you do not want your internet browsing activity to be tracked. Disabling tracking may interfere with some uses of the Website and the services provided on the Website.
After your initial visit to the Website, Umbrella, on our behalf, may change the cookies used by the Website. This Cookie Notification will always allow you to know who is placing cookies and for what purposes, and give you the means to disable them, so you should check it from time to time.
What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains, so when you visit the Website your browser may receive cookies from several sources.
Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember preferences and generally improve the user experience. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites.
Session cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser and persistent cookies remain on your device after the browser is closed (for example to remember your user preferences when you return to a website).
What types of cookies are used?
We describe the categories of cookies that we, our affiliates and our contractors (e.g. Umbrella on our behalf) use in this Cookie Notification.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the Website and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for (such as navigating between pages, using a shopping cart or e-billing services) cannot be provided.
The Website currently uses the following, strictly necessary cookies:
|Cookie name||Source||Purpose||Duration||Further information|
|SSID||Umbrella||Every page on this Website is protected behind an 'age gate' requiring opt-in proof of age. This cookie stores the confirmation of opt-in to prevent being presented with the age gate on subsequent page requests. The cookie remembers cookie status and preferences made to prevent being presented with the cookie consent on subsequent page requests, and the status of any security captcha code, helping to deter bulk or automated submissions.||Session|
Performance and Analytic Cookies
We make use of performance and analytic cookies to analyse how our visitors use the Website and to monitor the Website’s performance. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience by customising our offering, and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your use of the Website. The information collected by these cookies is not associated with your personal information by us or by our contractors.

HTML email web beacons
Our emails may contain a single, campaign-unique ‘web beacon pixel’ to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links within the email. We may use this information to determine which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML. Some of the pages on the Website may also contain web beacons which allow us to count visitors who have viewed our pages. They allow us to develop statistical information about the activities and features that most interest our consumers for the purpose of providing more personalised content. In general, they are not used to access personally identifiable information without your consent.
Use of IP addresses and web logs
Umbrella may also use your IP address and browser type to help diagnose problems with its server (on which the Website is hosted), to administer the Website and Carlsberg and Umbrella (on Carlsberg’s behalf) may use your IP address and browser type to improve the service offered to you. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on the internet. Your IP address might also be used to gather broad demographic information.
We may perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (e.g. google.com) to more accurately understand our users’ location.
