Cookie Policy

A cookie is a piece of information that a website stores in your website browser. The browser sends the information back to the website every time you visit a page on that website, enabling the website to recognise you.

Cookies include information such as the lifetime and expiry date of the cookie, the domain the cookie has come from and an identifier – for example, a random unique number.

Cookies can be categorised in different ways. In terms of duration, there are session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies last only as long as your browser is open. Common uses for session cookies include remembering what’s in your shopping cart on an ecommerce site.

Persistent cookies are written onto your device’s memory and come with an expiration date. They last until the expiration date or until you delete them. Persistent cookies may further be classed as first-party or third-party.

Your web browser uses first-party persistent cookies for many quality-of-life enhancements, like remembering that you’re signed in so you don’t need to log in every time you visit the same site. Third-party persistent cookies are not used by the owner of the website you are visiting but by the owner of a resource on the website you are visiting. Our website does not use third-party persistent cookies.

Cookies can be further categorised in terms of functionality:
