What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Cookies are widely used to help make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way, such as by recognising you and remembering information that will make your use of the website more convenient (such as by remembering your preference settings).
First-party cookies and third-party cookies
Cookies set by us are called first-party cookies.
We also use third-party cookies – which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of our website – for our advertising and marketing efforts and to track your usage of our site to provide you with targeted advertisements.
First-party and third-party cookies enable the website to recognise whether you have already accessed our site through your browser and, in many cases, it then varies the content displayed.
Cookies are downloaded by your internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit the site from the same device, the cookie and the information stored in it is either sent back to the site that generated it (first-party cookie) or to a different website to which it belongs (third-party cookie).
Persistent and session cookiesDepending on their lifespan, cookies can be distinguished between “persistent” or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie is a cookie that is stored on your computer until it expires or you delete it.
A session cookie, on the other hand, is deleted when you close your browser.
Cookies we use and purposes
Cookies are used for a variety of purposes. The table below explains the first- and third-party cookies we use on our website, why we use them and how long the different cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device.
