WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers placed on your computer or other device when you visit a website. The cookie is sent back to the same website every time you visit it again which allows the website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.

Session cookies allow us to track your actions during a single browser session, for example to remember the items returned from a search. They do not remain on your device beyond your session.

Persistent cookies remain on your device between sessions and allow us to authenticate you and to remember your preferences. We also use them to enhance your experience on our websites.

Session and persistent cookies can be either first or third-party cookies – a first-party cookie is set by the website being visited. A third-party cookie is issued by a different website to that being visited.

The term cookies includes similar technologies for collecting and storing information, such as Local Shared Objects (commonly referred to as “flash cookies”) and web beacons or web bugs (including transparent or clear gifs).
