Cookies are used by most websites in order to improve users’ experience by enabling a website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally enable us to improve the performance of our website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’). You can find out more about the way cookies work on www.cookiecentral.com.
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.
We do not use ‘first party cookies’. We do use services that set cookies to your computer as ‘third party cookies’.
Third party cookies are:
At times, third parties may show our adverts outside of our website. If you visit the site, having browsed content and then leave, third parties may ‘remember’ this visit and display a relevant advert within another website you visit. This process is commonly referred to as remarketing or retargeting.
Third parties ‘remember’ you and can display adverts through cookies. Cookies may be sent to your browser when you visit a page on the site, which will then be used to show adverts based on the content you browsed.
