Cookie Policy

This Cookie Notice explains how we (“Catalina Re and its affiliates”)  use cookies and other similar technologies on company websites (websites & “Sites”).

Our websites use cookies and other technologies that are necessary for performance. In addition, other non-essential cookies and technologies are used for the purposes set out in this Cookie Notice.

This Cookie Notice explains what cookies and other similar technologies are, why we use them, and how you can manage your preference.

What are cookies and other similar technologies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your browser and accessed by the website operator or third parties when you visit the original website or another website that recognises the cookie.

We set some cookies to collect information about you – these are called first-party cookies. We also use third-party cookies, which are set by third parties and information about you collected by those cookies will be shared with the relevant third party. Please refer to the relevant third party’s privacy notice as set out in the table below for more details about the information they collect and how they use it.

You can find more information about cookies at: or Cookies | ICO. We also use other similar technologies to cookies, such as web beacons, pixels, and tags. These technologies do a similar job to cookies.

For the purposes of the remaining sections of this Cookie Notice, we refer to cookies and these other similar technologies as “cookies.”

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Generally it is recognised that businesses such as Catalina Re can use cookies that are necessary for the operation of websites. For all other types of cookies, we want and your informed consent.

Our websites use different types of cookies.

Please note that our websites may link to third party websites which are not operated by us. Where you follow links from our websites to that of a third party, that website may place different cookies on your device. You should check the relevant privacy notice and/or cookie notice for more information about how that third party uses cookies.

You should be aware that applications you use to access our Sites, such as your website browser, may also place cookies on your device when visiting our Sites, or other websites. An example of this would be where you sign into Google Chrome using a Google Account. We do not have control over these third-party cookies, so you will need to manage these cookies in the settings of the relevant applications.

How long do cookies last?

All cookies have expiration dates that determine how long they stay in your browser:

Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that are placed on your device during your browsing session and then expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser.

Persistent Cookies – these are designed to last for a pre-defined period, which varies depending on the nature of the cookie. Persistent cookies stay in your browser until they reach their individual expiry date, or until you manually delete them (see below).

How do I refuse, block, or delete cookies?

There are various ways that you can manage your cookie preferences, but please be aware that to use some parts of our websites you will need to allow certain essential or functional cookies. If you block or subsequently delete those cookies, some aspects of our websites may not work properly or your access may be limited.

Your options for managing your cookie preferences are set out below:

Through the Cookie Preference Centre on our Sites

When you access our Sites we will ask you to provide consent for our use of non-essential cookies. We may repeat this request on subsequent visits to our Sites, for example if you delete cookies from your browser or we need to request new consents from you.

When we seek your consent, you will either be able to provide consent for all non-essential cookies that we would like to use, or you can tailor your cookie preferences (provide consent for some but not all non-essential cookies) using our Cookie Preference Centre. You can at any time change or withdraw your consent from the Cookie Configuration tab on the bottom left of our Sites.

Using your browser settings or other tools

You can block the use of cookies generally (not just in respect of our Sites) by activating the relevant settings in your browser. For more information on cookie management and blocking or deleting cookies for a wide variety of browsers, visit About Cookies or Cookies | ICO.

Further, if you do not want to be tracked by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on (but this will only work on certain browsers). For further information on Google Analytics and its use of cookies, please consult the Google Analytics cookie notice.
