What are cookies?
Cookies are very small data files which are sent by a website’s server to a web browser, and stored within processor memory or hard drive. There are a range of purposes which they can be used for, including customising a website for a user, helping users with website navigation, improving website user experience, and storing a user’s preferences so they do not need to be set on each subsequent visit.
Essential and non-essential cookies
Cookies can be classified as either ‘essential’ or ‘non-essential’.
Essential cookies are either used solely to conduct or facilitate the transmission of communications over a network; or are strictly necessary to provide an online service (e.g. a website or a service on a website) which you have requested.
Non-essential cookies are any cookies that are not essential, such as those that are used to analyse user behaviour on a website (‘analytical’ cookies) or cookies used to display advertisements (‘advertising’ cookies).
Session and persistent cookies
Cookies are classified as being either ‘session’ or ‘persistent’, depending on the length of time they last for after they are placed on your browser.
Session cookies last for as long as your browser is open and will expire when you close it.
Persistent cookies will either expire at a specific point in time or can be manually deleted from your browser, whichever occurs first.
First and third party cookies
Cookies can be classified as ‘first party’ or ‘third party’.
First party cookies: these are cookies placed on your device by our website domain.
