About cookies

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (usually a string of letters and numbers) that is downloaded on to a device such as a computer, tablet or smartphone if a user accesses a website. When a user from that device visits the website again the cookies are sent back to the website. This means that website can recognise the device being used.

Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies:

  • a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date;

  • a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
