Terms & Policies

Welcome to TradeWinds!

Information files (“cookies”)

TradeWinds uses information files (cookies) to customise content and develop our digital publication and services (hereafter referred to as “digital solutions”).  Information files or cookies are small data or text files which a website may store on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device, choices and preferences the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term cookies when referring to all files that collect information in this way.

We use cookies for many purposes, primarily for analysis, but also in connection with marketing to customise content and advertising optimally. Examples are:

• General statistics for our digital solutions and their performance

• Manage User-ids and preferences

• Remember-me functionality for log-in

• Manage access control for various products and services

• Improve technical performance and quality on our sites

We use several types of cookies:


Session-based cookies

Session based cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. We use these to register when you are online on our digital solutions, and how you navigate, for instance while using MyTradeWinds pages. 


Fixed cookies

These cookies are used to collect information on authentication and preferences. They aren’t deleted when you exit the browser but on a later designated date, or when you delete them yourself. By using these cookies we optimise the performance of our services and can make sure your log-in details and preferences are remembered the next time you log on. We also use them to track your use of the website and to remind you to update your subscription details from time to time.


Third-party cookies

We may also use third-party cookies that could be both session-based or fixed. They are typically used in advertisements on our digital solutions. If you click on links provided by a third party, terms and conditions for these third-party suppliers apply, including their cookie policies. We allow advertisers to place such cookies on their advertisements to enable them to monitor the efficiency of their advertising. This is limited to anonymous data and cannot be traced back to you as a person. 


Disabling cookies

You may at any point disable cookies in the settings or internet options menu in your browser. There are also tools that can monitor and give you the overview of which cookies are used on the web pages you visit. To learn more, see for instance www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies are essential to the administration of our subscriber-based services. If you do disable our cookies you will find that certain sections of our website do not work. For example, you will have difficulties logging in or viewing articles.
