What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term 'cookies' in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way. There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to analyse how well our website is performing. Certain cookies contain personal information - for example, if you click to 'remember me' when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won't collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user's general location.
What sort of cookies do we use?
Generally, our cookies perform a couple of functions:
We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
We use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online.
We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
