Initial Website Cookie Use Notice

When you first use any of our B Lab UK websites (i.e. http://bcorporation.uk  https://bleaders.uk/ , https://boardroom2030.co.uk , https://betterbusinessact.org/)   a pop-up asks you to consent to accepting non-essential cookies. This policy explains why, what this means, and the implications of your choice. 

Cookie Use Policy

Our websites use "cookies" to ensure you receive the best possible visitor experience. Cookies are small files which are sent by a web server to an individual's computer which are then stored on that computer's hard drive. A cookie contains text and is like an identification card which can only be translated by the server it originated from.

Some of these cookies are essential for the operation of our website and we do not need to request your consent to use these. Other cookies

We do not use cookies to collect or record information on your name, address or other contact details, which we can only collect where you tell us, for example if you submit an inquiry to us or sign up to receive newsletters.

Our Privacy Policy has a table which shows what data we collect, why and the legal basis for its collection.

Types of cookies we use

We may use the following types of cookies:

  • Essential cookies. Our website requires the use of these cookies to properly operate or provide necessary functions relating to the services you request. They include, for example, cookies enabling you to securely log into our website, use our platform, sign up for analytical and other services, or purchase services. 
  • Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies allow us and our third-party service providers to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us improve how our website works by, for example, ensuring that users can easily find what they need on our website. These cookies generate aggregate statistics that are not associated with an individual account or visitor.
  • Functionality cookies. These cookies enable helpful but non-essential website functions that improve your website experience. By recognizing you when you return to our website, they may, for example, allow us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, or remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). These cookies may enable visitor identification across websites operated by B Lab UK or our affiliates and over time.

Third party cookies

Our website may contain links to other websites which are outside our control and are not covered by our Privacy and Cookies Policy. If you access other websites using the links provided, the operators of those websites may collect personal data from you which will be used in accordance with their respective privacy policies which you should read. We are not liable for the practices of such third party website operators in respect of your personal data.

Most internet browsers allow you to prevent cookies being stored on your computer. Alternatively you may be able to configure your browser to accept all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is offered by our server. You may also be able to delete all cookies currently stored on your web browser. Therefore unless you change your browser settings you will automatically accept essential cookies from our website. However, please note that blocking all cookies may interfere with your use of the website.
