Cookies

The majority of websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of various jobs, they let you navigate through pages smoothly, storing your preferences, and mainly improving your experience of a website. Cookies ensure the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will not remember you and will assume that you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t remember you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Quite a few websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their marketing campaigns or advertising messages based for example, your current location and/or browsing habits.

Cookies can be set by the website you are exploring (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

What is actually inside a cookie?

A cookie is a standard text file that is stored on your computer or device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to access or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will hold some anonymous info such as a unique identifier and the website name and some digits and numbers. It ensures that a website will remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping cart.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set

There are a small minority of individuals who find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a little bit nosey, especially when this information is stored and used by a third party without their knowledge. Even though this process is really quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see marketing which has been aimed at your interests. If you prefer, you're fully entitled to block some or even all of the cookies, you also have the power to delete cookies that have previosly been set; but you need to be aware that you the experience on the site may suffer along with possibly losing some functionality of the website too.
