Which cookies are being used?
The following cookies are currently being used across the various IMechE websites.
These are cookies that are required for the operation of the websites. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of the website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the websites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
These are used to recognise you when you return to the website. This enables us to personalise the content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
These cookies record your visit to the website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. This information is used to make the website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. This information may also be shared with third parties for this purpose.

Google Signals, a feature within Google Analytics, allows us to gain insights into user behaviour across various devices when users are signed into their Google accounts. This feature is activated when users click "Allow all cookies." It provides aggregated data and reports on user interactions across smartphones, tablets, and desktops. By leveraging data from users who have enabled ad personalisation, we can access reports that include information on user behaviour, such as the number of users who visit our website via multiple devices and the paths they take during interactions. This cross-device tracking capability offers valuable insights into user journeys, helping us make data-driven decisions to improve our services and website functionality, and optimise marketing and advertising strategies.
IMechE treats the privacy of its members, customers, and website users very seriously and we take appropriate measures to safeguard your privacy.
