What are cookies?
Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet-connected devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device), and a randomly generated unique number.
What types of cookies do we use?
There are two main kinds of cookies: “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies.
Session cookies only last for the duration a user uses our website and are deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies outlast user sessions and remain stored on your computer until they are manually deleted, or until they reach their expiry date. How long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie and on your browser settings.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can choose to modify your browser settings to decline cookies. This may prevent you from using some features of our websites.
