What are cookies?
Cookies are files which are downloaded to your device, for example, when you visit a website. They are useful because they allow us and our partners to recognise a user's device and support the continuity of your experience.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and improving your user experience. They can also help to ensure that ads you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
There are a few different categories of cookies, including:
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are set by us or a third party on our behalf, and are essential to enable you to use the basic features of our Services, such as technically delivering content, setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling in forms. Without these cookies, services you have asked for e.g. payment, cannot be provided.
Optional cookies may be "first party cookies" or "third party cookies" as explained in the table below.
First party cookies - these are cookies set by us or by a third party on our behalf.
First party functional cookies. These cookies allow the websites to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features and content.
First party performance cookies
These cookies gather data about how visitors use our Services to enhance the performance of our Services. For example, these cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Services. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors interact with our Services. If you do not allow these cookies we will not be able to monitor the performance of our Services.
First party targeting cookies
These cookies are used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations such as advertisers like Facebook Ads. These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.
Third party cookies
These are cookies that are set by a third party or set by us at the request of a third party.
On your mobile device, your operating system may provide you with options to opt out of interest-based advertising or to otherwise reset your mobile identifier. This is a unique identifier that can be used to identify a mobile device which works in a similar way to a cookie. For example, you may use the "Limit Ad Tracking" setting (on iOS devices) or a setting to "opt out of Interest-Based Ads" (on Android) which allows you to limit the use of information about your use of apps for purposes of serving ads targeted to your interests.
