Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: allaboutcookies.org and youronlinechoices.eu.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Cookies are referred to as session or persistent, depending on how long they are stored on your computer or device:
- Session cookies only last for the length of your online session. They disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.
- Persistent cookies stay on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last for a set period of time specified in the cookie. These cookies are activated each time you visit the site that generated the cookie.
