What are Cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded onto your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises those cookies. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.
Cookies have a variety of functions such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally, improving user experience. Cookies can also help ensure that the adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Some cookies are allocated to your device only for the duration of your visit to the website, and these are known as “session based” cookies. They automatically expire when you close your browser. Another type of cookies known as “persistent” cookies would remain on your device for a set period of time.
In addition, please note that out website contains third party cookies i.e. cookies that are set by a third party domain.
We have categorised the cookies used on the website based on the ICC UK Cookie Guide and they are as follows:
Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential to enable users to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services which a user has selected like shopping baskets or e-billing cannot be provided. Because these cookies are strictly necessary, user consent is not required.
Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how the website is used, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, and whether they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor and information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve the performance of a website. In addition, some of these cookies are analytics cookies, set using third party web analytics software, which allow a website owner to understand more about how its website is used.
For example, some websites use Google Analytics cookies to help the owners of those websites to monitor their website traffic but those cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. The owners of those websites may also use such cookies to highlight products and/or services which they think will be of interest to its users based on the users use of their websites.
Functionality cookies. These cookies allow websites to remember choices its users make such as user name, language or the users’ region and to provide enhanced and more personalised features. For example, this type of cookie allows a website to provide its users with local traffic news, currency pricing or weather reports. These cookies can also be used to remember changes users have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that can be customised. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track its users’ browsing activity on websites other than the website the user is visiting.
Targeting cookies. These cookies are used to deliver adverts that are relevant to the user and his/her interests. They are also used to limit the number of times he/she sees an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the permission of the website operator. They remember that the user has visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. It is common for targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations.
You may at any time restrict, disable or delete the cookies by adjusting your device settings. For more information, please see the ‘Managing Cookies’ section below. However, you may not be able to access some parts of the website, and some features may not function properly or be available to you.
