It is not necessary to accept cookies in order to use the website. However, there may be certain areas and features on the website that you will not be able to use.
What are cookies?
Cookies are very small text files or pieces of code, which often include an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, the website sends information to your computer or mobile device and creates a text file that is then stored on your computer or mobile device. Information gathered through cookies may include the date and time of visits and show how people use the particular website or mobile application, usually so the website operator can make improvements. Amongst other things, cookies are also used to help you access a website and its content as efficiently as possible (by remembering you from your last visit) and to make sure you are presented with advertising that is relevant to you.
Similar to cookies are technologies known as “web beacons”, “pixels” or “tags”. These technologies do a similar job to cookies, allowing website operators to count page views and understand how visitors interact with and respond to certain content.
How long do cookies last?
The lifespan of a cookie depends on its purpose and how you interact with it:
Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that are placed on your device during your browsing session and then automatically erased when you close your browser.
Persistent Cookies – these are designed to last for a pre-defined period of time, which varies depending on the nature of the cookie. Persistent cookies stay in your browser until they reach their individual expiry date or you manually delete them.
Which cookies are used on our Site?
We use the following types of cookies:
Essential Cookies/Strictly Necessary Cookies – These cookies are those cookies which a website could not operate without. These include cookies such as login cookies and shopping cart cookies.
Functional Cookies – These cookies recognise you when you return to a website, remember your preferences and provide enhanced, more personalised features.
Performance Cookies – Performance cookies, along with other information, allow websites to calculate the aggregate number of people using a website and which features of a website are the most popular. This information is generally used to improve the website and the way visitors are able to move around it.
Targeting Cookies – Targeting cookies (also known as advertising cookies) help us to deliver our adverts when you visit other websites, such as news websites. This is known as “retargeting”. This technique helps to ensure that the ads you receive are more relevant to you and your interests. These cookies help to measure the effectiveness of an ad and can also limit the number of times that you see an ad. These cookies are placed on your device by advertising networks that we and other advertisers work with to deliver ads. They remember what sites you visit, and this information is shared with other ad networks to show you relevant ads.
Flash cookies are stored on your computer as data elements of web sites if they are operated with Adobe Flash. Flash cookies have no time limit.
