1. What are cookies?
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but may be linked, by us, to personal information stored about you.
Cookies can be used by web servers to track users as they navigate different pages on a website and to identify whether users are new or returning users to a website. Using these cookies allows us to recognise you as a unique customer and provides us with information about how you use our website.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
