2. What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your browser or your hardware to allow a website to recognize you when you return to it. This can either be for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (a ‘persistent cookie’). Cookies can be created through a variety of web-related protocols and technologies, such as HTTP (sometimes referred to as ‘browser cookies’), HTML5, or Adobe Flash.

Cookies are an extremely common technology for remembering certain information about a website visitor. Most websites currently make use of cookies for a wide range of tasks. Cookies may be set by the website in question (’first-party cookie’) or third-party suppliers and partners who set or read cookies on the website (’third-party cookie’).

We use cookies for the following purposes:

  1. Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website.

  2. Functional cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our Website and to embed functionality from third party services. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name, remember your preferences (for example, to pre-populate form content you’ve already entered previously) and to integrate useful services provided by third party providers into our Website e.g. landing pages and relevant pop-ups.

  3. Performance and analytics cookies. We use these cookies to collect information that allows us to analyse web traffic to our Website, such as count the number of visitors and see how they move around our Website. The information collected via those cookies is anonymous. We send it to a third party that operates tools to analyse the collected information. This helps us to improve the way our Website works, for example by making it easier for you to find what you are looking for.

  4. Embedded third-party content. Some of the content on our Website (e.g. forms, buttons and pop-ups) is provided by online services operated by third parties. When you visit a page containing content from one of these services, a cookie may be set by the relevant third party. A list of the third-party cookies currently used in connection with this Website can be found in the cookie table.
