What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website which recognises the cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Our friends at Google have a very good video about cookies to watch here.

Cookies do a lot of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help ensure that the adverts that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

The cookies on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK cookie guide. A list of all the cookies used on this website by category is set out below.

Targeting cookies or advertising cookies (these cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests)

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times that you see an advertisement as well as measuring the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
