What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are saved to your device when you visit a website. They store information about how you use the website, including tracking the pages you visit and remembering your log-in details. The information cookies store doesn’t usually directly identify you, just the device you are using. 

There are different types of cookies, and they can be distinguished based on their origin and lifespan: 

First and third-party cookies 

A cookie set by us is called a first party cookie. When you visit our website, your browser will store these cookies on your device to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information.  

We also use third-party cookies – which are cookies from other websites, like social media platforms. These cookies can improve the performance of our advertising and marketing efforts, or they are set when we embed content, like YouTube videos, into our website. We do not control the collection or further use of information by third parties. 

Session and persistent cookies 

Session cookies are temporary and only last for as long as you are on a website. When you close your web browser they are erased.   

Persistent or permanent cookies stay on your device until you manually delete them or until your browser deletes them based on the duration period specified in the persistent cookie file. 

More information on all aspects of cookies can be found at or on the ICO website
