What kind of cookies do we use?
Strictly necessary cookies
These are cookies that are required for the operation of a website. They include, for example, cookies that enable users to log into secure areas of a website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services. Generally, these are session cookies that expire on closing the browser but not always.
These types of cookies allow online providers to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around their website when they are using it. This assists online providers in improving the way their website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. Generally, these will be first party cookies, and a mix of session and persistent cookies. Sometimes the services are provided by third parties and specialised software – which can use either first or third-party cookies.
These are used to recognise users when they return to a website. They enable the personalisation of content, the recognition of users and remember user preferences (for example, their choice of language or region). They are generally a mix of first and third party, session and persistent cookies.
These cookies record a user's visit to a website, the individual pages visited and the links followed. If the cookie is set by a third party (for example, an adtech provider) which also monitors traffic on other websites, this type of cookie may also be used to track a user's movements across different websites and to create profiles of their general online behaviour. Information collected by tracking cookies is commonly used to serve users with targeted online advertising. These will almost always be third party cookies and mostly persistent.
