What are cookies?

Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet-connected devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. A cookie is a file containing a unique identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser.

A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device), and a randomly generated unique number. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

What types of cookies do we use?

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

There are two main kinds of cookies: “persistent” cookies and “session” cookies.

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, that is, when the web browser is closed. Session cookies only last for the duration a user uses our website and are deleted from your computer when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies outlast user sessions and remain stored on your computer until they are manually deleted, or until they reach their expiry date. How long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie and on your browser settings.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can choose to modify your browser settings to decline cookies. This may prevent you from using some features of our websites.
