What Is A Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that a website can send to your browser (if you agree to it), which is then stored on your system and used, for example, to collect information about your website activity. The term ‘cookies’ includes similar technologies for collecting and storing information such as web beacons.
Some cookies are deleted when you close down your browser. These are known as session cookies. Others remain on your device until they expire or you delete them from your cache. These are known as persistent cookies and enable us to remember things about you as a returning visitor. Session and persistent cookies can be either first- or third-party cookies. A first-party cookie is set by the website being visited. A third-party cookie is issued by a different website to that being visited. Further information explaining cookies can be found at www.allaboutcookies.org. Alternatively, you can search the internet for other independent information on cookies.
What Cookies does this Website Use?
This website uses two types of cookies, both of which are “first-party”:
‘essential cookies’ are necessary for the operation of our website and do not require user consent. They include, for example, cookies that enable users to log into secure areas of our website; and
‘analytical cookies’ allow us to measure, for example, overall popularity of our website and typical user paths through our website. Analytical cookies also allow us to improve the way our website works by ensuring users find what they are looking for easily. The analytical cookies we use are Google Analytics. These may be either persistent cookies which enable us to remember things about you as a returning visitor or session cookies which are erased when you close the browser. Details can be found by visiting Google’s information page, via this link: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.
