What are Cookies?

Types of Cookies?

 

There are different types of cookies:

 

Session cookies

Last after you have closed your browser, and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences.

 

Strictly necessary cookies

Essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, we will not be able to connect you to our Website properly.

 

Performance cookies

Collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often or regularly. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor although they may collect the IP address of the device used to access the site. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works, the user experience and to optimise advertising.

The information these cookies collect is anonymised (i.e. it does not contain personal information) and they do not track your browsing activity across other websites.

 

Targeting cookies

Collect several pieces of information about your browsing habits. They are usually placed by advertising networks. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as media publishers. These organisations do this in order to provide you with targeted adverts more relevant to you and your interests.
