What are cookies?

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is stored on your computer, tablet or phone when you visit a website. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our website.

There are two main types of cookies:

  • session cookies: these are deleted when you finish browsing a website and are not stored on your computer longer than this;
  • persistent cookies: these are stored on your computer after you have finished using a website so that the website provider can remember your preferences the next time you use it.

Cookies can be set by the website you have browsed, i.e. the website displayed in the uniform resource locator (URL) window. These are called first party cookies. Third party cookies are set by a website other than the one you are browsing.
