What are cookies?
Cookies are small encrypted text files that are stored on your computer or other device (such as smart phones or tablets) when visiting a website. Cookies are essential to effective operations on our website as they help tailor products and services and increase ease of access by remembering various items.
It is possible to turn off your cookies through your website browser settings however this will affect the functionality and experience of our site.
We are becoming increasingly transparent to meet our customers’ needs and recent legislation.
Types of Cookies?
First Party Cookies
First party cookies are set by the website, you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.
Third Party Cookies
Third party cookies are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company who will set their own cookie to perform this service. The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from, for example YouTube or Flickr, and these sites may set their own cookies.
More significantly, a website might use a third party advertising network to deliver targeted advertising on their website. These may also have the capability to track your browsing across different sites.
Session Cookies are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.
This type of cookie is saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and is not deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies are used where we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, we use this type of cookie to store your preferences, so that they are remembered for the next visit.
Many websites use Adobe Flash Player to deliver video and game content to their users. Adobe utilise their own cookies, which are not manageable through your browser settings but are used by the Flash Player for similar purposes, such as storing preferences or tracking users.
Flash Cookies work in a different way to web browser cookies (the cookie types listed above are all set via your browser); rather than having individual cookies for particular jobs, a website is restricted to storing all data in one cookie. You can control how much data can be stored in that cookie but you cannot choose what type of information is allowed to be stored.
Which cookies do we use?
We have categorised our cookies into two sections; First and Third party cookies.
