What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text file which is downloaded to your device when you visit a website. A cookie makes it possible for a website to recognise your device and gather information about the pages and features visited. It also helps maintain your choices when navigating on our site or returning to it later.

In this policy, the term “cookie” refers to a number of different tracking technologies such as pixel tags (transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email which indicates that a page or email has been viewed), mobile device identifiers, and web storage used in desktop software or mobile devices.

Some of the cookies we use will need your permission, by way of ‘Consent’, to allow us to do this. Other cookies, (usually session cookies) are essential, and do not require your Consent. However, regardless of whether we need your Consent or not, we will inform you if we are using them, by including information within this Cookie Policy. Cookies, and any similar technologies change over time, so please refer to this Cookie Policy at regular intervals to ensure you remain aware of how we use them.

There are several different types of cookie used for different purposes. Some of these are for our benefit, to help us improve our website and improving the user experience. Others are to ensure security and help prevent fraud, and are strictly necessary to provide the requested by you. Other types of cookie are more aligned to your preferences, such as what we think you might like to see in terms of adverts.

Cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website. We understand that everyone is unique and has different preferences. By using cookies, we can tailor the adverts that you see, and we can understand the webpages you may be most interested in so your browsing experience is better for you. We can give you more choices when using cookies, such as saving your username so you do not have to type this in every time you log into your account.

When we place a cookie on your device, it is retrieved by the website that placed that it there in the first place, or any other website, which may use that specific cookie.
