What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small files created on your computer when certain websites are loaded via your browser. They allow useful pieces of information to be provided to website owners, which enable you to use websites more efficiently and to save time (for example, by not having to input your details each time you visit the site), thereby enhancing your browsing experience.

Cookie Types 

  • Strictly necessary: These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website.
  • Analytical/performance:These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us, and third parties, to improve the way our website works.
  • Functionality: These cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you.
  • Targeting: These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We may also share this information with third parties.

Cookie Scope 

  • Cookie expiration – Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens a browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer.
  • Session Cookies – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. These session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored long term. For this reason, session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.
  • Persistent cookies –  are stored on a user’s device in between browser sessions, which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.

Some cookies that we use will collect personal information about you. Any personal information that is collected will be used in accordance with our Privacy Notice.

Cookie Sources – First vs Third Party 

  • Definition – Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie.
    First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user – the website displayed in the URL window. Our website may place, and access certain first party cookies on your computer or device.
  • First party cookies – are those placed directly by us and are used only by us. We use cookies to facilitate and improve your browsing experience on our website. We have carefully chosen these cookies and have taken steps to ensure that your privacy and personal information is protected and respected at all times.
  • Third party cookies – are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie. We have no control over how third-party cookies act, or whether that third party uses any other cookies. We advise you to check the privacyn notices of any such third parties before providing any data to them.
