What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to your computer or other internet enabled devices when you visit a website. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognise its users on subsequent visits, or to authorise other designated websites to recognise these users for a particular purpose. We collect a number of cookies from you for various reasons, not least to track our own performance – but also to let us serve you content tailored to your own specifications, hopefully improving your overall experience of the Website. Amongst other things, the cookies we use allow us to calculate how many visitors we have and how long they stay on our site.
- Recalling if you visited the site before. If you are a first-time user, you might see different content compared to a regular user.
- Remembering your preferences and settings, including marketing preferences
- Remembering your specific preferences, such as if you filled in a survey, so you are not asked to do it again.
- Enabling social media components, like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
We like to keep track of what pages and links are popular to help us keep our Websites relevant and up to date. It is also very useful to be able to identify trends of how people navigate (find their way through) our sites and if they get ‘error messages’ from web pages.
This group of cookies often called ‘analytics cookies’ is used to gather this information. Analytics cookies only record activity on the site you are on and they are only used to improve how a website works.
