What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the website name and some digits and numbers.

Many websites you visit use cookies to improve your experience by allowing the website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

What do cookies do?

Cookies have several jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and improving your experience in a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the website, for example, even after you “log in,” if you move to another page it won’t recognize you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Although cookies are generally quite harmless, you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests using your browser history. If you prefer, you may choose to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you should be aware that you might lose some functions of the website.

If you want to restrict or block the cookies that are set by our website, or any other website, you can do so through your browser setting. The ‘Help’ function in your browser should explain how.

To opt-out of third-parties collecting any data regarding your interaction on our website, please refer to their pages for further information.
