General cookie Information

What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small text files of information stored on your computer when you visit certain webpages. We use cookies to enable and improve certain functions on our websites and gain feedback on how our websites are used. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it can affect how our websites work. The cookie may contain a unique identifier but it does not contain personally identifiable information such as your name or email address. This information may be analysed by third parties on our behalf, but is not sold on to anyone else.

We use analytics cookies to collect information on website activity (such as the number of users who visit our websites, the date and time of visits, the number of pages viewed, navigation patterns, what country and what systems users have used to access the site and, when entering our websites from another website, the address of that web site). This information on its own does not identify an individual but it does provide us with statistics that can be used to improve our websites.

The browsers of most computers, smartphones and other web-enabled devices are usually set up to accept cookies. If your browser preferences allow it, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when cookies are set. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn about how to change your cookie preferences. However, please remember that cookies are often used to enable and improve certain functions on our websites. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it may affect how our websites work and certain functionality may not work. More information about cookies can be found on allaboutcookies.org.

Types of Cookies

Cookies work in the same way, but have minor differences:

Session Cookies

Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. These facilitate various tasks such as allowing a website to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality. Many of the Cookies we use are session Cookies. For example, they help us to ensure the security of session, and can also keep you logged in while you move between pages. 

Persistent Cookies

Persistent Cookies last after you have closed your browser and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences. Sometimes persistent Cookies are used by websites to provide targeted advertising based upon the browsing history of the device. 

We do occasionally use these cookies to help us make our online marketing more targeted. Please check your browser and remove any cookies you don't want to keep.  

First and third party Cookies

Whether a Cookie is a first or third party cookie depends on which website the Cookie comes from. First party Cookies are those set by or on behalf of the website visited. All other Cookies are third party Cookies. We use both first party and third party Cookies. For a full list of the cookies we use please see below:

Type of cookies we use 

We use session cookies which expire once you close your web browser. Occasionally we use persistent cookies which have an expiration date for marketing purposes (unless you delete them before they expire). Please note none of our first or third party cookies gather any personally identifiable information. Please see the full list under the section ‘Cookies we use’
