Cookie law requires that you, as a website user, are informed about how cookies are used on our websites and that you give your consent to cookies being stored on your computer, laptop, mobile or tablet.
A cookie is a small text file which is downloaded to your computer when
you access websites. Typically, they contain the following information: a
site name and unique user ID, the duration of the cookie's abilities
and effects, and a random number. Cookies are not used to reveal your
identity or personally identifying information.
Generally, the role of cookies is beneficial, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother with no extra effort on your part. Without cookies, online shopping would be more difficult. Without cookies, some websites will become less useful with the cookie option turned off.
These cookies expire when you close your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome etc). These cookies are used for various reasons, for example, remembering what you have put in your shopping basket as you browse a website. They can also be used for security to access your Internet banking or email.
These cookies are still stored on your computer after you have closed your web browser which allows your preferences on websites to be remembered. These cookies are used for a variety of purposes, for example, remembering your preferences on a website (your language choice or your user name on a particular website).
This refers to the website placing the cookie. First party cookies are cookies set by the website you are visiting. Third party cookies are set by another website; the website you are visiting may have advertising on the page and this other website may be able to set a cookie on your computer. Third party cookies on the main web browsers will often allow third party cookies by default. Changing the settings in your browsers can prevent this.
There are some exemptions to the above where it is essential for a website to store information on your computer, for example, to provide a specific website service to you that you have requested.
