- A “cookie” is a small piece of information placed on your device’s hard drive via your web browser. “Session cookies” are temporary cookies which remain on the cookie file of your browser until you leave a website. “Persistent cookies” remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). The “help” button on the menu bar of most web browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser tell you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies. More information about cookies is available at www.aboutcookies.org.

Third party cookies

GE Social Media

Where this is the case, this function is provided by the social media site provider and not GE. GE does not hold your friend’s details and any messages you send to friends via GE Social Media.
Third party links
- GE may contain links to websites which are not controlled by the GE website. This might include a link in a third party advertisement.

We are not agents for any such websites or advertisers and we are not authorised to make representations on their behalf (unless explicitly stated). GE is not responsible for the privacy practices of any such websites. You provide personal information to such websites at your own risk and you should check their privacy policies.
