A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time.

Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to decline them and can delete them whenever they like.

Websites mainly use cookies to:

  • Identify users
  • Remember users’ custom preferences
  • Help users complete tasks without having to re‑enter information when browsing from one page to another or when visiting the site later.
  • Cookies can also be used for online behavioral target advertising and to show adverts relevant to something that the user searched for in the past.

Types of cookies

A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

  • Session cookie which is erased when the user closes the browser or
  • Persistent cookie which remains on the user’s computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

  • First-party cookies which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain
  • Third-party cookies stored by a different domain to the visited page’s domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain.

You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website).
We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time by posting a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.
