Our cookie and tracking technologies policy
This section is about what cookies and other tracking technologies are, how we use them and how you can manage them.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are stored on your device when you visit a website. The cookies mean that the website will remember you and how you've used the site every time you come back.
If you want to know more about cookies, head to aboutcookies.org or allaboutcookies.org (please note: these links open a new window or browser tab).
What are other similar tracking technologies?
This refers to any other method used to store information, gain access to information, or track activities on your device, such as Local Shared Objects (“flash cookies”), scripts, tracking pixels and plugins, app trackers (including SDKs) on smartphones, tablets, smart TVs or other devices.
We've put our cookies into the following categories, to make it easier for you to understand why we need them:
We sometimes use persistent cookies as well as 'session-based' cookies. A 'persistent' cookie will remain for a period of time set for that cookie. A 'session-based' cookie is allocated only for the duration of your visit to our website and automatically expires when you close down your browser.
Third-party cookies originate from a domain that’s different to the website being visited. For example, when you visit our website, we may link to another company's website – like our Facebook or Twitter account, or a video from our YouTube page. We don't control how they use their cookies, so we suggest you check their website to see how they're using them and how you can manage them.
