What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile phone. They allow our website to store things like user preferences so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

Cookies enable you to use all the latest features of our website and development tools and to personalize your experience on our sites. Cookies tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, help us measure the effectiveness of ads and web searches, and give us insights into user behavior so we can improve our communications and products.

For more information about cookies please refer to

Some cookies are allocated to your device only for the duration of your visit to a website, and these are called session based cookies. These cookies automatically expire when you close down your browser. Another type of cookie known as persistent cookies would remain on your device for a set period of time.

In addition, please note that the website contains third party cookies i.e. cookies that are set by a third party domain. The cookies used on our websites have been categorized based on the guidelines found in the ICC UK Cookie guide. We use the following categories on our website.

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential to enable you to browse around our website and access secure areas of the website. Without these cookies specific areas of the website and features of the development tools cannot be provided.

Because these cookies are strictly necessary, we do not need to ask for your consent to use them.

Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our websites — for instance, which pages you go to most and how often. This data may be used to help optimize our websites and make them easier for you to navigate. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

Anonymous analytics cookies

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by an XMOS-approved organisation generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you do not, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. Unless you are signed in to a MyXMOS account, we cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your username and email address.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow our websites to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, we may store your geographic location in a cookie to ensure that we show you our website localized for your area. They may also be used to keep track of what featured products or videos have been viewed to avoid repetition. The information these cookies collect will not personally identify you, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting and advertising cookies

These cookies allow us to know whether or not you've seen an advert or marketing communication, and how long it is since you've seen it. We also use cookies to help us use targeted advertising and marketing communications. We may use cookies set by another organization so we can more accurately target communication to you. For example, we may show adverts about the development tools if you have recently downloaded software on the website, or ask for your feedback on features of the development tools. These cookies are anonymous – they store information about what you are looking at on our site, but not about who you are.

Managing cookies

You can manage the cookies stored on your device by adjusting your web browser settings. This will allow you to refuse cookies altogether, restrict the cookies stored on your device or even delete those that have already been set.

You can adjust your device's web browser settings by using the Help function within the web browser. You can also visit to obtain instructions on how to adjust the web browser setting of your device. That site contains comprehensive information on how to adjust your web browser settings for a wide variety of web browsers.

If you disable or decline cookies, some features will not be available to you or function properly and you may not be able to access some parts of the website or features of the development tools. If you delete the cookies, any settings and preferences controlled by those cookies will be deleted and will need to be re-created when you visit the website or tools subsequently.
