Cookie Use Policy

 

New technologies are emerging on the Internet that help us to deliver customised visitor experiences. In particular, there is a technology called “cookies” which may be used by us to provide you with, for example, customised information from our site.

 

1. What is a cookie

 

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time.

 

Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to decline them and can delete them whenever they like.

 

There are different types of cookies:

 

A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

 

  • session cookie which is erased when the user closes the browser or

  • persistent cookie which remains on the user’s computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

 

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

 

  • first-party cookies which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain

  • third-party cookies stored by a different domain to the visited page’s domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain.

 

2. Cookies on this website

 

Cookies on this website may be used as follows:

 

  • To identify your unique session on the website.

  • To ensure that you are recognised when you move from page to page within the site.

  • To ensure that any information you have entered is remembered.

  • To indicate a logged in user.

  • To customise a user’s view of the admin interface, and possibly also the main site interface.

  • To check whether a user’s web browser is set to allow or reject cookies.
