What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
The types of cookies we may use on this Site:
- Session cookies (“Session Cookies”) which are temporary, non-persistent cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Site at which point they are deleted.
These allow you to carry information across pages of our Site and avoid you having to re-enter information. They allow you to maintain a shopping basket, only whilst you are on the Site. When you leave the Site they are automatically deleted.
When visiting the Site if you only provide information and complete the Unsubscribe section, Session Cookies are used whilst you are on the Site and automatically delete once you leave.
If you subsequently register with this website you are then consenting to allowing us to store information linked to your log-in i.e. your newsletter preferences, by the use of Persistent cookies. Refer below.
- Persistent cookies: these remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). They help us to recognize you as a unique visitor (just a number, no name or other personal information is collected).
When you return to our website they allow us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests, or to avoid showing you the same adverts, or invite you to complete the same questionnaire, repeatedly.
These cookies include analytical cookies which compile anonymous aggregated statistics to measure how many people visit and how they then move, around the Site. This helps us improve the way our website works, and therefore improve your visit.
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. i.e. provide you with the ability to accept or decline cookies, by modifying the settings in your browser. However, if you disable some cookies, this may prevent you from using all the interactive features of our Site.
For more information about cookies and how to disable/enable cookies, refer to the following link http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
