What are cookies?
The UK Information Commissioner (‘UK ICO’) defines a cookie as ‘small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.’ You can find out all about cookies, how to manage them and delete them, and how to manage your browser settings, at the UK ICO and www.aboutcookies.org. You can also opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites. As above, please note that if you manage your browser and third party settings to block cookies, some or all of the Website and Services may not have full functionality and your user experience may be impacted.
There are 4 main types of cookie, as defined by the ICC:
- Strictly necessary cookies – which enable services you have asked for, such as cookies used related to user input, authentication, multi-media content players, shopping baskets or e-billing. These are typically ‘session cookies’ and are deleted at the end of or shortly after the end of the session. Consent is not required for these cookies.
- Performance cookies – which collect anonymous information about how visitors use a website, such as the pages visitors go to most often. They don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works. However, consent is required for these cookies.
- Functionality cookies – which ‘remember choices you make to improve your experience’, such as your user name, and may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.’ These require consent.
- Advertising cookies – which ‘are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests’. These also need consent.
