Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. For example, they enable a website to identify that, when you move from one page to another, you are not a new user and so do not need to log on again.
Cookies can be set by the owner of the website itself (“first party cookies”) or by other websites that provide content (such as advertising) for the website that you are viewing (“third party cookies”)
The cookies used on the Website can be grouped into the following four categories:
Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They allow our web servers to respond to your actions on the Website and while browsing it. The Website will not work for you without these cookies.
Analytical/performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the Website in order to remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to the Website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. The session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
Some cookies used on the Website are temporary and remain on your device until you leave the Website, at which point they are deleted. These are often called “session” cookies. Session cookies are typically used on the Website to allow you to carry information across pages of the Website and avoid having to re-enter information, and to allow you to access stored information whilst you are logged into a user account on the Website.
Other cookies used on the Website remain on your device once you have left the Website (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These are often called “persistent cookies”.
