What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are used to store or retrieve information to perform certain functions and remember visits to a website. There are 2 distinct types of cookies – session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie is only accessible while your browser is open, and is deleted as soon as you navigate away from our website. A persistent cookie can remain on your computer for a pre-defined period of time, or until they are forcibly deleted. Other technologies including pixels, tags, web beacons or local storage also store and retrieve data on a device and are similar to cookies. A further explanation about cookies is available on: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/
If you do not want to accept a cookie you can use your in-built browser or device settings to deny or accept individual or all cookies. The procedure varies depending on browser or device so please visit your browser or device’s settings or help section for more details. Additional information on managing third party cookie opt outs is included below in our ‘Third Party Cookies’ section.
These may be ‘session’ cookies, meaning they delete themselves when you leave our website, or ‘persistent’ cookies which do not delete themselves and help us recognise you when you return so we can provide a tailored service.
