1. What are cookies?

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 web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so when you visit the website, your browser may receive cookies from several sources.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember preferences and generally improve the user experience. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites.

2. What types of cookies do we use?

We use different types of cookies. Some cookies are third party cookies - these are cookies that are set by a third party website or applications rather than by us. These third parties may use cookies, but their use of cookies will not be governed by this Cookies Policy.

The cookies used on our websites also can be categorized in four ways in accordance with their purpose: (1) cookies that are strictly necessary; (2) cookies that assist with the performance of our websites; (3) cookies that record functionality requests; and (4) targeting cookies. Each of these is further explained below.
