What are cookies?
This web site uses a web browser feature called a ‘cookie’. “Cookies” make websites work better and allow websites to remember previous actions or settings. They are small text files stored on your computer’s hard drive by the browser and may contain information about you or your computer. Cookies are NOT viruses.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and saving you time because you won’t have to keep re-entering your details each time you visit.
Cookies are split into “First-Party” (those set by our website directly) and “Third-Party”* (those set by partners of our website for example through a live chat function available on some of our sites) and are classed as either ‘session cookies’ (only set for that session) or ‘persistent cookies’ (which are stored on your browser between sessions and recognise you on your return).
* Third party cookies are set by partners of our websites and we do not control the dissemination of these cookies. For more information about this you will need to refer to the relevant third party website.
