The following cookies must be set to make this website work properly for you in accordance with your cookie settings.
The following cookies are used to monitor and analyse how and when people access and interact with this site. The information that they generate is aggregated anonymously and is used to plan and evaluate marketing campaigns and to improve this site.
The following cookies are set by selected social media suppliers and advertising agencies to record and facilitate social media interactions and to enable targeted advertising to be made based on your online behaviour.
A cookie is a very small encrypted text file that can be placed by a website in a computer or any other internet enabled device when that website is visited. It contains a unique reference number, the purpose of which to enable the website operator and, if different, the owner of the cookie, to know when an internet user has visited the website concerned; to keep track of that person when they are on the website; and, in some cases, to enable visits to and from other sites to be tracked. It is essentially an identification tag for an individual computer or other internet enabled device.
Broadly speaking there are two types of cookie (1) “session” cookies, which are stored temporarily in a computer’s memory and are automatically erased when you close your web browser: and (2) “persistent” cookies, which are stored the hard drive of a computer and which exist for longer, in some cases for years.
Some session cookies are essential to make a website operate properly, for example to allow visitors to switch between webpages or to complete a purchase on line without interruption.
Depending on its lifespan, a persistent cookie can be used to record an internet user’s login details and browsing preferences for a particular website so these features do not need to be reset each time that person visits that website. A persistent cookie may also be used to record how an internet user behaves on a website by recording which pages they visited, how much time they spent on each one, and if there is any other kind of interaction with the site what form this took. Such data can be used to improve the performance of a website.
Cookies may be classified as either first party or third party. A first party cookie is one which is set by or on behalf of a website operator. A third party cookie is one that is by set someone else, normally with the permission of the website operator.
