Types of Cookies

 

There are several types of Cookies, some of which may be used by and on our site.

 

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are  essential for the running of a website and its features. They allow  proper website functionality and access to services such as your  account, secure shopping and posting comments on a blog. Without them, a  website cannot perform properly.

 

Performance Cookies

These cookies  collect information about how visitors use a website. For example, which  pages are visited most often, how people navigate around the site and  if there are any error messages that appear. They don’t collect any  information that identifies a user, only anonymised, aggregated information that is used to improve the way the website works and the  customer journey.

 

Functionality Cookies 

These cookies allow  a website to remember your preferences and choices you make, such as  your preferred language, region and username. They gather information on  things you customise and select and retain it for your next visit. They  are not essential but enhance the user experience of a site.

 

Third Party Cookies

Some website pages  may use third party services or software, such as maps, online videos or  social networking features. Many of these services may set cookies in  your browser. This website has no control over third party cookies but  visitors can opt out of these cookies via their browser.

 

Flash cookies

Flash cookies are  commonly used in website advertisements, video clips and animation. They  enable a website to recognise the user’s browser when it returns and  store information such as when a video stopped playing. They also  provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences.

 

Advertising Cookies 

These cookies are  used by advertisers to deliver adverts that are more relevant to you and  your interests. They keep track of which ads a person has viewed,  control how many times they are exposed to the same advert and track the  effectiveness of marketing campaigns. This information can then be used  in re-marketing, by customising adverts the user sees on other websites.

 

Web Beacons

Web beacons are  bits of data that count the number of users who access a website or  webpage. They allow an organisation to see if a cookie has been  activated, if a user has clicked through to links to adverts contained  in emails. This is used to identify which emails are of most interest to  a customer and to track the success of advertisements.

You can block cookies at any time by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies.
