What are cookies
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer (or other device such as mobile phone) if you agree. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. We use both session and persistent cookies on our website.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.
We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and so that we can improve it for individuals that visit and use it.
Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website. Google Analytics customers can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website so that they can improve it.
Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site.
Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are used to store information, such as the time that the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before and what site referred the visitor to the web page.
Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors.
