What are cookies?
The cookies we place on your computer cannot be used to retrieve any other data from your hard drive, to pass viruses to your computer, or capture your e-mail address. Each cookie is unique to your web browser and device. Some of the functions that cookies perform can also be achieved using alternative technology. We use the term 'cookies' in this policy to mean cookies and all similar mechanisms.
The cookies American Express uses, and their purposes
Managing your Cookie Preferences
You can manage your cookie preferences through the American Express website, and/or through adjusting your browser settings:
a) Through the American Express Website
You may choose to either ‘Accept’ or ‘Decline’ marketing cookies from our site by going to the Set Cookie Preferences section in our Privacy Statement. If you choose to ‘Decline’ marketing cookies, essential, functionality and performance cookies will not be blocked.
Any choice you make will not delete any existing cookies previously placed on your computer by our site, but will prevent further cookies from being placed.
If you wish to delete the cookies that are currently stored on your computer, you cannot do this through our site and must instead do this through your browser settings (see below).
Any choice you make on our site will be stored and applied for one year from the date you make the choice, or until you delete all existing cookies through your web browser settings (because if you do this, it will also delete the record of your choice). The next time you access our site after the expiry of the one year period or after deleting your cookies, you will be prompted to provide your choice again.
For a limited period, the choices which you make on some parts of the American Express website will not be reflected when you use other parts of the website. Please be aware that we are currently working on a solution, as your choices are important to us. If you are concerned about this then we would recommend that you change your cookie settings via your browser (see below)
b) Through your browser settings
If you'd prefer to restrict, block or delete cookies from www.americanexpress.com/ireland or any other website, you can use your browser to do this. Each browser is different and your browser ‘Help’ function will show you how to do this. Please note that if you choose to disable essential, functionality and performance cookies, it will affect how the American Express website works. For example, while you will still be able to view the public website, you won't be able to log on to our secure journey, check your account balances, or make payments.
Use of other websites
When you use links to other websites which we provide to you, we recommend that you read the privacy and cookies policies on those websites.
Please note that any choice about cookies that you may have provided on an American Express site will not be honored on non-American Express websites.
