- What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file containing small amounts of information which a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Such third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. website analytics services). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer or mobile device both when it visits the website in question and when it visits certain other websites.
- How long do cookies last?

Some cookies are ‘session cookies’, meaning that they exist only while your website browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies’, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed and can be used by websites to recognise your computer when you later re-open your browser and browse the internet again. The duration of the cookies used on our Website is explained in more detail in the table below.
