Cookie Notice

Last updated: November 9, 2020 

This Cookie Notice explains how Wilmington Trust (“Wilmington Trust”, "we", "us", and "ours") use cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit our websites and access our online services ("Online Services").  It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.  Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. 

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Wilmington Trust) are called "first-party cookies".  Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third-party cookies".  Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. 

Why do we use cookies?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Online Services to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Services. Third parties serve cookies through our Online Services for advertising, analytics and other purposes.  This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first- and third-party cookies served through our Online Services and the purposes they perform are described in the table below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Service you visit or interact with).

We use session cookies (which are deleted when you leave your browser) and persistent cookies (which are saved on your device and are not deleted when you leave your browser). The duration of cookies is determined according to their purpose and in general they have a lifespan of one year after last use. You can delete any persistent cookies manually on your web browser controls.

Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Online Services and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.  

  • Who serves these cookies: 

  • How to refuse:

    Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Online Services to you, you cannot refuse them.

    You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings however, as described below under the heading "How can I control cookies?".  However, functionality will be impacted.

Performance and functionality cookies:  These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Online Services but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable. 

  • Who serves these cookies: 

  • How to refuse:

    To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading "How can I control cookies?".

    Alternatively, please click on the cookie preference centre link.

Analytics cookies:  These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Online Services are being used or how effective marketing campaigns are. 

Advertising cookies:  These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests. 

Social networking cookies:  These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our Online Services through third party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too. 

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs").  These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Online Services to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Online Services. These companies may use information about your visits to our Websites and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to our Websites and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by clicking on the cookie preference centre.

 Please also note that your cookie settings are configured on a per device basis, rather than on a per user basis. This means that if you access our Online Services using different devices you will need to select your cookie preferences on each device.

You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

How often will you update this Cookie Notice?

We may update this Cookie Notice from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.  Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Notice regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.  

The date at the top of this Cookie Notice indicates when it was last updated.
