Cookie Policy

Introduction

Our website uses cookies and other related technologies (for convenience all technologies are referred to as “cookies”). In the content below, we inform you about the use of cookies on our website.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are pieces of data, normally stored in text files, that websites place on visitors’ computers to store a range of information, usually specific to that visitor – or rather the device they are using to view the site – like the browser or mobile phone.

Cookies allow you to login on one page, then move around to other pages and stay logged in. They allow you to set preferences for the display of a page, and for these to be remembered the next time you return to it.

Cookies can also be used to watch the pages you visit between sites, which allows advertisers to build up a picture of your interests. Then when you land on a site that shows one of their adverts – they can tailor it to those interests. This is known as ‘behavioural advertising’.

Almost all websites use cookies in some way or another, and every page you visit in those sites writes one or more cookies to your computer and receives them back from it. Cookies are incredibly useful – they allow modern websites to work the way people have come to expect – with every increasing level of personalisation and rich interactive functionality.

Cookies are categorised depending on what function they are set to perform:

Social media buttons

Buttons such as for Facebook and Instagram are sometimes used to promote webpages (e.g. “like”, “pin”) or share (e.g. “tweet”) on social networks like Facebook and Instagram. These buttons work using pieces of code coming from Facebook and Instagram themselves. This code places cookies. These social media buttons also can store and process certain information, so a personalised advertisement can be shown to you.
