What are cookies?
Cookies are computer files or partial data that can be saved on your computer (or other devices enabled to browse the internet, for example smartphones or tablets) when you visit a site. Usually a cookie contains the name of the Internet site from which the cookie comes, the “life span” of the cookie (ie how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.
What types of cookies do we use?
Two types of cookies can be used on our site: “session cookie” and “persistent cookie”.
Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you leave the site.
A ‘persistent cookie’ remains on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie stays on your device will depend on the ‘lifespan’ of the cookie in question and the settings of your browser).
