This Cookie Policy tells you what to expect when our website collects personal information. It applies to the information we collect about our visitors, and those who may be able to login to our websites. This cookie policy spans across all websites operated by MJT Securities Ltd.


“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website places on your computer’s hard drive while you’re viewing websites operated by MJT Securities Ltd. (referred to from here on out as ‘our site’), which can be used at a later time by the website to identify particular devices and thereby remember your website preferences and log in details.

Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location. Cookies also help us run our site better and faster and they let you navigate between pages more efficiently.

We may use ‘session’ cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and ‘persistent’ cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our site. In plain English, this means we use cookies so that we can provide our services, understand how they are used, and for advertising/analytics purposes.

Also, Cookies that we set are called “first party cookies”, while cookies set by other parties are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable features or functionality from such third parties to be provided on our site. The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites (see below…)


Cookies make websites work better and they are a standard part of most modern websites. For example, they remember the items you’ve placed in your online shopping cart so that the items appear at the checkout when you make your purchase. Another example would be when you login to webmail services such as Hotmail or Gmail: on such occasions a cookie is generated that confirms you are logged in and when you log off, the cookie is deleted. This means if someone goes back to your webmail address on your computer, you will still be logged out – and they won’t be able to read your emails.


Before cookies are placed on your computer or device you will be shown a pop-up requesting your consent to set such cookies as detailed below. By giving us your consent, you are allowing us to provide the best possible experience of our website. You may refuse consent to cookies; however, certain parts of our website may then not function correctly.

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns which does not identify any individual.

We will also collect data from you when you contact us via the website.

We do not make any attempt to discover the identities of anyone who visits our website, and we will not associate any of the data gathered from our website with any personally identifiable information from any source. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

Third Party Cookies

You may notice on some pages of our websites that cookies have been set that are not related to MJT Securities Ltd. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Facebook, these third-party service providers may set their own cookies on your device. These cookies are likely to be analytical / performance cookies or targeting cookies.

Similar technologies

Aside from cookies, we also use something called “pixel tags” — otherwise known as clear GIFs or web beacons. Pixel tags are tiny graphic images with unique identifiers, similar to cookies, that are used to recognise when someone has visited our site or opened an email that we have sent them. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in web pages. They can analyse web traffic patterns from one page within our site to another, communicate with cookies, and understand whether you came to our site from an online advertisement or post displayed on a third-party website.  We do not tie information gathered by pixel tags to our users’ personal information.  Among other uses, they enable us to compile statistics about usage of our sites, so that we can manage our content more effectively. We use the Facebook pixel tag on the MJT Securities Limited Websites to build up a ‘Custom Audience’ based on people who visit our website, so we can target more relevant and effective Facebook advertising campaigns. Please refer to Facebook for more information.

You are advised that content distribution partners such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, X and YouTube, may store the information collected by them for their own purposes in accordance with their cookie policies, such as for targeting ads and for product development and analytics. Content distribution partners may also share information with their partners.
