Cookie notice

Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust Plc (“Octopus” or “we” or “us“) uses cookies on our website (https://octopusrenewablesinfrastructure.com/cookie-notice/)  (the “Website“), which amongst other things, help us to better understand how visitors use our Website. This, in turn, allows us to continuously improve the contents and functionalities on our Website. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit. They can improve your experience of using a website, for example, by remembering your preference settings and tracking your use of a website so that it can be improved to meet your needs.

Websites generally must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you. You can set your cookie preferences when you arrive at our Website, or change them at any time by clicking the “C” icon at the bottom left of your screen.

Unless the cookie is a strictly necessary cookie, you can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time even if you have previously consented.

The table below explains what cookies we use on our Website and why we use them. We also state in the table whether a cookie is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. The difference is that:

  • Persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit the Website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a “persistent cookie” is used on a Website to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that Website.
  • Session cookies allow Website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the Website and finishes when you close the Website window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the Website, all session cookies are deleted.
