This website and our mobile applications use cookies and similar technologies. By visiting our website or using our applications, you agree to the use of cookies as described in this policy.

We use cookies and similar technologies to collect data from your device. These technologies are essential for the website’s operation, but they also enhance your experience by personalizing content, understanding your usage patterns, providing social media features, delivering service messages, and displaying relevant advertisements.

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. When you revisit or visit websites that use the same cookies, they recognize your browsing device.

We use cookies for various purposes, such as facilitating efficient navigation between pages, remembering your preferences, and improving your overall browsing experience. They also help ensure that the ads you see are more relevant to your interests. Additionally, we employ similar technologies like pixel tags and JavaScript to perform these tasks.

When you access our website from any device, we collect information about your usage, including device type, operating system, screen resolution, and IP address. This information helps us provide tailored online services, prevent and detect fraud, and maintain your security. Please note that certain transactions may be affected if you are physically located in specific countries and do not have these cookies or similar technologies installed.

Our use of cookies includes:

  • Ensuring security and privacy on our secure sites.
  • Storing login details for secure sites.
  • Temporarily storing input information in calculators, tools, illustrations, and demonstrations.
  • Providing relevant ads and improving targeting on our sites and partner sites.
  • Enhancing our understanding of your navigation through our sites to identify areas for improvement.
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of our advertising and promotions.

We use both first-party (our own) and third-party cookies from partner companies to support these activities.

The cookies used on this website fall into four categories:

  • Strictly necessary: These cookies are essential for providing our services, verifying your identity, maintaining security and privacy, and allowing access to secure areas of the website. Disabling these cookies will impact the website’s functionality.
  • Performance: These cookies collect anonymous data to inform us about website usage, such as frequently visited areas and error messages. This data helps us improve our website and ensure our products and services meet your needs.
  • Functionality and profile: These cookies remember your choices, personalize features of the website, and provide requested services (e.g., watching videos, and commenting on blogs). They also ensure that our banking services and communications remain relevant to you.
  • Targeting: These cookies help tailor our messages and are shared with other Barclays systems or third parties (e.g., advertisers, and social media platforms) to deliver personalized advertisements and messages. If you choose not to consent to this category, you may still receive generic advertising or service messages, albeit less relevant to you.

In addition to the cookies used on our website, we may also use cookies and similar technologies in emails and push notifications to understand your interaction and improve our communication.

You can control the placement of non-essential cookies on your device by adjusting your data preferences on the Data Preferences page.

Regarding previously collected data from cookies when you had provided consent, we will stop using that data for non-essential categories as soon as reasonably possible when you change your settings to disable those categories.
