Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text fragments, normally comprising letters and/or numbers, sent by a website that you visit and stored by the software (e.g. a web browser) installed on your device. Cookies are then sent back to the website when you next visit.

Cookies hold information about your visits to a website. They are a very useful technology: e.g. they facilitate the website’s operation, making it more efficient and providing helpful information to website owners. Without cookies or similar technologies, websites would have no way to remember information about their visitors, e.g. how many items you placed in your basket and whether or not you logged in.

Cookies can be classed by their:

  • • duration: persistent or session cookies;
  • • source: first-party or third-party cookies;
  • • purpose: technical, analytics or profiling cookies.

Cookies that expire when a browser session ends (normally on closing your browser) are termed session cookies. They serve, for instance, to memorise a purchase order or for security when you access your online banking or webmail. Cookies that are stored for longer (from one session to another) are persistent; their uses include remembering your preferences and offering targeted advertising.

A cookie is first-party or third-party depending on which website or domain places the cookie. First-party cookies are installed directly by the website that you are visiting, whereas third-party cookies come from a different domain: e.g. when the website incorporates images, social-media plugins or adverts from other sites.

A cookie’s job can also be done by equivalent technologies that can identify devices and thus analyse the visits to a website. This Cookie Policy covers any technology that stores or accesses information on your device – such as HTML5 local archiving, Local Shared Objects (also called flash cookies) and fingerprinting techniques. Fingerprinting involves uniquely identifying a given device by detecting, associating or deducing various pieces of information, such as:

  • • its configuration data
  • • data derived from using particular network protocols
  • • the use of JavaScript
  • • information on HTTP headers

If you disable, block or delete cookies, this can impair the operation of some functions or some parts of the website; third-party services may also be affected.

Cookie management settings are configured differently on different browsers. Here is how to change your cookie settings on several popular browsers:
