What are Cookies?
A cookie is a text-only string of information that this Website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that this Website can recognize you when you revisit and remember certain information about you. This will include which pages you have visited, choices you have made from menus, any specific information you have entered into forms and the time and date of your visit.
Types of Cookies
There are two main types of cookies:
- Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave the site. Session cookies allow this Website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use this Website more efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket.
- Persistent cookies In contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. They therefore enable this Website to "recognize" you and remember your preferences on your return and tailor services to you.
In addition to session cookies and persistent cookies, there may be other types of cookies which are set by this Website you have chosen to visit, such as this Website, in order to provide us or third parties with information.
We currently use, and may use in the future, the following types of cookies on this Website.
We use session cookies to:
- help us maintain security and verify your details while you navigate from page to page on this Website, which prevents you from having to re-enter your details each time you enter a new page.
We use persistent cookies to:
- help us recognize you as a unique user when you return to our Website so that you do not have to input your details multiple times as you move between our pages or services;
- remember how you have customised your use of this Website, such as your preferred currency and time zone;
- collect and compile anonymous, aggregated information for statistical and evaluation purposes to help us understand how users use this Website and help us improve the structure of our Website.
As with third party cookies, you are able to block third party cookies through your browser settings.
