Cookie Use

What are cookies, and how do they work?

A cookie is a small file that we save onto your device when you visit our website. Most of the cookies we use will need your permission, by way of ‘Consent’, to allow us to do this. Some cookies, (usually session cookies) are essential, and do not require your Consent. However, regardless of whether we need your Consent or not, we will inform you if we are using them, by including information within this Cookie Policy. Cookies, and any similar technologies change over time, so please refer to this Cookie Policy at regular intervals to ensure you remain aware of how we use them.

Cookies relate to any data, including personal data, and send information back to any website that you visit that recognises the cookie stored in your device.

There are several different types of cookie used for different purposes. Some of these are for our benefit, to help us improve our website and improving the user experience. Others are to ensure security and help prevent fraud and are strictly necessary to provide the ‘information society service’ (requesting content to load on a webpage/a service over the internet) requested by you. Other types of cookie are more aligned to your preferences, such as what we think you might like to see in terms of adverts.

Cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website. We understand that everyone is unique and has different preferences. By using cookies, we can tailor the adverts that you see, and we can understand the webpages you may be most interested in so your browsing experience is better for you. We can give you more choices when using cookies, such as saving your username so you do not have to type this in every time you log into your account.

When we place a cookie on your device, it is retrieved by the website that placed it there in the first place, or any other website, which may use that specific cookie.
