13.2 This section explains what cookies are and gives details of the specific cookies we use on our website. It also sets out why we use these cookies and provides information on the cookie choices that you and all our website visitors have.

13.3 We use a range of cookies on our website, including strictly necessary cookies, performance / analytics cookies and functional cookies (see more details under ‘What do we use our cookies for?’ below). The cookies may be set by us or by a third party.

A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. The other technologies we use serve a very similarly function but work slightly differently.

First party cookies, served directly by us to your device when you visit our website; and
Third party cookies, served by a third party on our behalf when you visit our website and certain third party websites with whom we have partnered.

These cookies can be divided into session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remember your user choices and preferences and are then deleted as soon as you leave the site.

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org.
