1 – WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies and similar technologies such as pixel tags/beacons and scripts (‘cookies’) are small data files which are downloaded onto your device by the website which you are visiting. The next time you visit the same website, cookies ensure that your device is recognised. By using cookies, this website can save information about visits and visitors.
There are two types of cookies, persistent and session. A persistent cookie will remain on your computer until it’s expiry date or it is a deleted. A session cookie works slightly differently, a session cookie only remains on your computer until the web browser is closed.
Cookies can be utilised to make visiting a website more personal, by, for instance:
- displaying relevant navigation settings;
- remembering visitors’ preferences;

Generally, cookies can be disabled and the “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you would like to use or access a website, you may do so without accepting all cookies.
