Flash Cookies We may, in certain situations, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as “Flash cookies”) are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at the browser level, in the same way you would manage cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website directly. The Adobe website provides comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies see adobe.com/security/flashplayer for further information.

For example, developers of Extensions that are used by broadcasters on their Elektricity channels may set cookies to operate those Extensions and remember your user settings and preferences, e.g., format, position, etc., of the Extension.
In addition, third-party advertisers and other organizations may use their own cookies to collect information about your activities on the Elektricity Services websites and/or the advertisements you have clicked on. This information may be used by them to serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you based on content you have viewed.
