How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us to analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Session and persistent cookies

Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens the browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer. The European Cookie Regulations apply to both types of cookies.

Session cookies – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security, for example to facilitate use of webmail, or when a user is accessing internet banking. These session cookies expire after a browser session, so would not be stored long term. For this reason, session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.

Persistent cookies – are stored on a user’s device in between browser sessions and allow the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or, in some cases, across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.

First and third party cookies – Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie.  In basic terms, first party cookies are those set by the website being visited by the user, i.e. the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are those that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. For instance, if a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website, then that would be a third party cookie.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. You should note that once you have used these links to leave our site, we do not have any control over another website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide whilst visiting other sites and such sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy. You should therefore exercise caution and view the Privacy Policy for the website in question.
