In order to provide you with a more personalized and responsive service we need to remember and store information about how you use this website. This is done using small text files called cookies. Cookies contain small amounts of information and are downloaded to your computer or other device by a server for this website. Your web browser then sends these cookies back to this website on each subsequent visit so that it can recognise you and remember things like your user preferences. You can find more detailed information about cookies and how they work at http://www.aboutcookies.org/.
Except for the strictly necessary cookies that are mandatory for the website to operate, you can give your consent or manage your cookies preferences by clicking the ’Manage cookie preferences’ link on top of this webpage or on the other country, regional or practice specific websites contained in deloitte.com that you may visit.
What cookies do we use and why?
Some of the cookies we use are necessary to enable you to move around the website and use its features such as accessing secure areas that may contain content for registered users.
Based upon your consent we can also use functional, performance and/or targeting cookies as follows:
We also use functional cookies to record information about the choices you have made and to allow us to tailor the site to our users; for example, to remember your language or region or that you have already completed a survey. This information is usually anonymised and is not used for any other purpose.
We or our service providers also use analytic services to help us understand how effective our content is, what interests our users have, and to improve how this website works. In addition, we use web beacons or tracking pixels to count visitor numbers and performance cookies to track how many individual users access this website and how often. This information is used for statistical purposes only and it is not our intention to use such information to personally identify any user. However, if you have registered and signed into this website we may combine this information with information from our web analytic services and cookies to analyse how you use this website in more detail.
We use targeting cookies on this website to deliver targeted advertising to website visitors. These cookies may also be used on third party websites on which we occasionally advertise, to track the success of those advertising campaigns. We may use web beacons (also known as pixel tags) to determine which users have come to this website after viewing an advertisement we have served on such third party websites. We also work with such third parties to collect data so that we can determine the effectiveness of our ads and serve ads targeted to your interests. The use of web beacons does not provide us with any personal information and we do not use this technology to access your personal information. It is used only to compile aggregated data about users who visit this website and to gauge the effectiveness of our ads. Web beacons do not place information on your device, but may work in conjunction with cookies to monitor activity. You cannot remove or block web beacons, but you can remove or block cookies with which they work to block the collection of information about your user activity.
You can consult the exhaustive list of these cookies by clicking on the 'Cookie Settings' link in our cookie banner or by clicking the ’Manage cookie preferences’ link on top of this webpage.
The functional, performance and/or targeting cookies will only be installed after your acceptance at the level of the banner displayed during navigation.
The consent is valid for a period of 13 months. Please contact us if you would like more detailed information on the cookies we use.
How to control cookies?
By using this website you agree that we may place cookies on your computer or device under the conditions as set out above. Except for the strictly necessary cookies that are mandatory for the website to operate, you have several options for controlling and managing your cookies, for instance by clicking the 'Cookie Settings' link (in our cookie banner), clicking the 'Manage cookie preferences' link (from the top of this page), or changing your browser settings so that cookies from this website cannot be placed on your computer or mobile device. Most browsers will allow you to see what cookies you have and delete them on an individual basis or block cookies from particular or all websites. Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies, including your preference to opt-out from cookies as this itself requires an opt-out cookie to have been set.

We sometimes use external web services on this website to display content within the web pages of this website, for example to display images, show videos or run polls.
