UKForex Cookie Policy

We use “cookies” on our website to help analyse web page flow, customise our service, content and advertising, measure promotional effectiveness, enhance your user experience, and promote trust and safety.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on an internet user's computer memory. The information the cookie contains is set by a website's server and helps the website to recognise your device the next time you visit.

Cookies allow websites to respond to you as an individual. The website can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. Without cookies, a website would not be able to keep track of what you did before and would treat you like a new visitor every time you browse to a different page.

It is important to note that cookies are not dangerous. They are one of the most basic web technologies and are used by most websites.

In this section you will find information on what cookies we use on the website and how to reject or delete those cookies. For additional information you may wish to read our Privacy Policy or visit

Types of cookies

Session cookies

Session cookies are stored in your computer's memory for the length of your browsing session. They become inaccessible after the session has been inactive for a time and are automatically deleted from your computer when the browser is closed. They allow you to move from page to page without having to log-in repeatedly.

Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies are stored on a user's device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.

First and third party cookies

Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user - the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third party cookie. An example is Google Analytics.

Sharing with social networks

If you use the buttons that allow you to share products and content with your friends via social networks like twitter and facebook, these companies may set a cookie on your computer memory. Find out more about these here: and

Why are we talking about Cookies?

A change in EU privacy law means that we (and most other websites) have a new Cookie Policy.

Since 2003, anyone using cookies has been required to provide clear information about those cookies. In May 2011 the existing rules were amended. Under the revised regulations the requirement is not just to provide clear information about the cookies but also to explain what cookies are, how we use them, what benefits they bring and also to obtain consent from users to store a cookie on their device.

We're giving you this information as part of our initiative to comply with recent legislation, and to make sure we're honest and clear about your privacy when using our website. We know you'd expect nothing less from us, and please be assured that we're working on a number of other privacy and cookie-related improvements to the website.
