This Cookies policy applies to the websites of TfL and its subsidiary companies, including:
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device (eg computer or mobile phone). These include small files known as cookies, and other technologies which conduct a very similar function of understanding individuals' behaviours while using websites and mobile applications. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
You can set your web browser (eg Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer etc) to reject all cookies; allow only 'trusted' sites to set them; or to accept cookies from websites only for the duration of your visit. Your browser's 'Help' option will tell you how. However, please be aware that if you choose to delete or restrict cookies, some features of our website may not work.
You can also visit the AboutCookies website, for more information about cookies and how to manage them.
We sometimes use external suppliers to deliver services on our behalf, which means these cookies may be set by a third party (third-party cookies). We do not control these cookies so if you would like more information about them or information on how to opt out, please see their individual privacy policies (listed below). You can also go to youronlinechoices.com/UK/ to find out more about third-party advertising cookies.
Without these essential cookies, our website won't work properly. They help you move around secure areas of the website and carry out specific tasks, like journey planning or making a payment.
These cookies collect anonymous information about how visitors use our website, for example, the most popular pages and any error pages you see. We use this aggregated information to improve our website. We don't collect any information that identifies you as an individual.
Functionality cookies record information about choices you've made and allow us to tailor the website to your needs. They may also take the form of Flash cookies, which are stored in your Adobe Flash Player rather than your browser, and control your preferences when watching online videos or listening to recordings. The Adobe website has comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies.
These cookies are used to show you adverts relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert, as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks, with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations, such as advertisers.
Please be aware that these cookies are not controlled by TfL. If you would like more information about the cookies used by the companies or advertising networks we use, as well as information on how to opt out, please see their individual privacy policies (listed below).
This cookie is used by Google to report to us on the effectiveness of online marketing campaigns. User data is anonymous.
This is very similar to the cookie above (both are owned/controlled by Google) but is specific to the display advertising on our sites. User data is anonymous.
This cookie is used by advertisers to monitor the effectiveness of advertisements and make them more relevant to visitors. User data is anonymous.
We use Lotame, a third-party data management company, to help deliver relevant advertising to you. Lotame links information about your browsing to your IP address and device to do so.
We'll always keep our cookies lists as up to date as possible.
Sometimes, we embed images or videos from websites such as YouTube and Flickr. As a result, when you visit a page featuring such content, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. We do not control these cookies and cannot prevent these sites or domains from collecting information on your use of this content.
You should check the relevant third-party website for more information about them and how to opt out. If you are not logged in to their services, they will not know who you are but may still gather anonymous usage information (eg number of views, plays, loads etc).
On some pages, we also feature embedded 'Share' buttons or widgets that enable you to share content with friends through a number of popular social networking sites (eg Google+1; Twitter; Facebook 'Like' etc).
These sites may set cookies which can identify you as an individual when you are also logged in to their services. This means they may be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on TfL sites. We do not control these cookies and you should check the relevant third-party website to see how your information is used and how to opt out.
Some of our pages contain electronic images known as web beacons (or clear gifs), which allow us to count the number of visitors to these pages. Web beacons are usually only used to track the effectiveness of a particular advertisement, link or campaign. Some of these web beacons may be placed by third-party advertisers. You can visit the AllAboutCookies website to find out more about web beacons.
