Cookies Policy

It's simple - you own your data

The law on cookies demands that you, as a website user, are given the opportunity to understand how cookies are used on our websites. Further, that you are given the opportunity to consent to cookies being stored on your computer, be that a laptop, tablet or mobile.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file which is downloaded to your computer when you access a website. Typically, a cookie is made up of letters and numbers and contains the following information: a site name and unique user ID, the duration of the cookie's abilities and effects and a random number. As a rule, cookies cannot be used to reveal your identity or personally identifiable information.

When you visit for the first time a website that uses cookies, a cookie is downloaded onto your computer. The next time you visit that website, your computer checks to see if it has a relevant cookie and sends the information contained in that cookie back to the website. The website then notes that you have been to the site before, and in some cases, tailors what appears on your screen to take account of the fact you are revisiting the site. A cookie might record how long you spend on each page on a site, what links you click, even your preferences for page layouts and colour schemes.

Generally, the role of cookies is beneficial, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother with no extra effort on your part. Without cookies, online shopping would be much harder and some websites would become less interactive with the cookie option turned off. On occasions it is essential for a website to store information on your computer, for example, to provide a service to you that you have requested.
