What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file made up of letters and numbers, which is downloaded onto your computer, smartphone or mobile internet device when you access a website.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. They do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages on a website efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

You can find more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu .

Types of cookies

Cookies fall into the following different categories:

Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential to enable you to move around a website and use its features. These cookies don’t gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet. Your consent is not needed to use this type of cookie and they cannot generally be disabled.


Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website (e.g. what pages they go to most often). The information these cookies collect is aggregated and is, therefore, anonymous. Such cookies are only used to improve how a website works.

Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They can also be used to remember changes that you have made to text size and fonts.


Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to delivery adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations, such as advertisers.

In addition, cookies will be:


  • “session cookies” or “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are cookies which are deleted when you finish browsing a website (and are not stored on your computer longer than this). Persistent cookies are cookies which continue to be stored on your device after you have finished using a website, so that the website provider can remember your preferences the next time you use it; and

  • “first party” or “third party” cookies. First party cookies are cookies set by the website you have browsed (i.e. the website displayed in the uniform resource locator (URL) window). Third party cookies are cookies set by a website other than the one you are browsing.
