What cookies does CME Group use and what are they used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit our Sites, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience. Cookies also make your interactions with CME Group faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to deliver advertising to you both on and off the CME Group Sites.
We use five types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, targeting cookies, and social media cookies.
Strictly necessary cookies are necessary for the website to function and enable you to fully experience our services. These cookies make the features and functionalities found on these services available to you. CME Group uses this type of first-party cookie to handle user registration and login, and if they receive error messages from web pages. These cookies cannot be switched off in our systems and are not subject to your prior consent. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but subsequently some parts of the Site will not work.
Performance cookies collect information about how users interact with our services, including which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from certain pages. We use these third-party performance cookies to provide statistics on how our services are used and to measure delivery and performance of our campaigns. These cookies help us learn how well our services and plugins perform in different locations. We also use these cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including when you access CME Group from other websites, applications, or devices such as your computer or your mobile device.
Functional cookies provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They allow our Sites to remember choices you make (such as your username, language, email settings, and other settings) and provide enhanced, more personalized features. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. You may opt-out of these cookies, but some or all of these services may not function properly.
Targeting cookies may be set through our Site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not directly store personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Social Media cookies are used by social media services to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. These cookies may track your browser across other sites and build a profile of your interests, which may impact the content and messages you see on other websites that you visit.
