Types of Cookies
The length of time a cookie stays on your device depends on its type. We use two types of cookies on our websites.
- Session cookies are temporary cookies which only exist during the time you use the website (or more strictly, until you close the browser after using the website). Session cookies help our websites remember what you chose on the previous page, avoiding the need to re-enter information.
- Persistent cookies stay on your device after you’ve visited our website. For example, if you tick the ‘Allow Cookies’ option when you visit the site a persistent cookie will be used so that the site remembers your choice the next time you use it. Persistent cookies help us identify you as a unique visitor.
We also categorise our cookies to help our website visitors understand the specific reason for each cookie.
