What Are Cookies?

Our website uses the cookies listed below. A cookie is a small text file, sent to your personal computer or mobile device (“device”) by the web server, so the website will remember some information about your browsing activity on the website. The cookie will gather information related to your use of our site, information about your device, such as the device’s browser type and IP address, any demographic data and the URL of the link page if you came to our site through a third party site.

Depending on how long they are stored for, cookies are categorised as either ‘persistent’ or ‘session’:

  • Persistent Cookies are saved on your device for a certain amount of time after the browser is closed. They are activated on every occasion that you visit the website where the cookie was produced;

The cookies collect information in an anonymous form that does not identify a visitor, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

Links to third party websites

This website may contain links to third party websites. We do not control how cookies are used on such websites. We advise that you review the policies of third party websites separately.

When Are Cookies Made?

Writing data to a cookie is normally done when a new page on the website is loaded. For example, after a ‘submit’ button is clicked, the data handling page would be responsible for storing the values in a cookie. If the user has chosen to disable cookies, then the write operation will fail and other sites which rely on the cookie will either take a default action or ask the user to re-enter the information that would have been stored in the cookie.

Are Cookies Secure?

There is a lot of unease with regards to internet privacy and security. Cookies do not themselves present a threat to privacy, since they are only used to store information that the user has voluntarily submitted or that the web server already possesses. Although it is possible that this information could be accessed by specific third party websites if it is made available, this is just the same consequence as storing it in a central database. If you are worried that the information you provide to a web server will not be treated confidentially then you should query whether you need to provide such information at all.
