We have set out brief details of the cookies and similar technologies we use together with an overview of why we use them. To understand the table it is useful to know the following:
- cookies have a lifetime. Some only last until you close your browser or a short time. These are called ‘session cookies‘. Some last longer though, for example, to allow a website to recognise you when you return to them. These are called ‘persistent cookies‘.
- cookies placed directly by a website owner (like us) are known as ‘first party cookies‘ and most modern websites also use technology provided by other people/businesses. Cookies placed by other parties are known as ‘third party cookies‘.
