What are cookies?
For most modern websites to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic
information on its users. A site will create small text files on its users’
computers, which are known as cookies. These are designed to allow the
website to recognise its users on subsequent visits, or to authorise other
designated websites to recognise these users for a particular purpose.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs, which make your experience of the Internet
much smoother and more interactive. For instance, they are used to
remember your preferences on sites you visit often, to remember your user ID
and the contents of your shopping baskets, and to help you navigate between
pages more efficiently. They also help ensure that the advertisements that
you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Some data
collected is designed to detect browsing patterns and approximate
geographical location to improve user experience.
Some websites may also contain images called ‘web beacons’ (also known as
‘clear gifs’). Web beacons only collect limited information, including a cookie
number, a timestamp, and a record of the page on which they are placed.
Websites may also carry web beacons placed by third party advertisers.
These beacons do not carry any personally identifiable information and are
only used to track the effectiveness of a particular campaign (for example by
counting the number of visitors).
Information collected by cookies is now classed as personal data.
We collect a number of cookies from our website visitors for various reasons,
not least to track our own performance, allowing us to calculate how many
visitors we have and how long they stay on our site.
We also share information about your use of our site with our social media
and analytics partners.
