COOKIE POLICY

Last Update: November 2021

This Policy describes how and why Balderton Capital (UK) LLP (“we”, “us”, “our” and “Balderton”) uses cookies on this website www.balderton.com.

What are cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website or app – when visited by a user – or when you interact with an email, asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as whether or not you have consented to our use of cookies. Those cookies are set by us and are called first party cookies.

We also use third party cookies – these are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting or a domain we are not operating – for example to analyse traffic to our website.

How we use Cookies

This website uses two types of cookies: persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that remain on your device for a certain period of time (as indicated in the table below) or until you manually delete them or object to them. Session cookies are cookies that expire at the end of the browser session (e.g., when you leave our website and close your browser).

We use strictly necessary cookies to (i) save user preferences (including cookie preferences), and (ii) secure our website and our services (e.g. to detect malicious brute force attacks).

We use non-essential (non-strictly necessary) cookies to observe and analyse traffic levels and other metrics on our website, which helps us improve our website as well as your overall user experience. We only use non-essential cookies where we have your consent (see below).

Cookies may be first party or third party, meaning they are operated by us (first party) or by another party (third party). Please note that interactions with the third party cookies on our website are governed by the privacy and cookie policies of the third party as set out below. For more information on our partners/third parties who use cookies on our website/app, please consult this [List].
