WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are very small text documents or pieces of code, which often include an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website or use a mobile application, a computer asks your computer or mobile device for permission to store this file on your computer or mobile device and access information from it, such as standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information. Information gathered through cookies may include the date and time of visits and how you are using the particular website or mobile application. Cookies are used by us on our Site and they are also used by some of our third party partners.
Cookies can be ‘first-party’ or ‘third-party’ depending on the domain that sets them.
- Third-party cookies. These cookies are set by another parties’ website (so not ours) and information is collected and used in accordance with that parties’ policies.
First-part and third-party cookies can be either ‘session’ or ‘persistent’ cookies depending on their duration and our Site uses both persistent and session cookies.
- Session Cookies. These cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your computer or device until you leave our Site. They allow our Site to link your actions during a browser session. We may use these for a variety of purposes such as remembering what you clicked on, on the previous page visited. A session starts when a user opens a browser window and ends when the browser window is closed, following which all session cookies expire and are deleted;
- Persistent Cookies. These cookies remain on your device for much longer or until you manually delete them (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie, as well as your browser settings). Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.
