What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and to target the content displayed to the user’s interests. Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.
We also use marketing or referring tracking codes in internet addresses (URLs) to show us whether a visitor has come to our site via a link on a referring website or in a specific piece of marketing and to give us insight into the effectiveness of our marketing. Some of this information may be used by third party cookies to target you with relevant advertising (see below).
We also measure the success of the emails we send – so we know what subject lines and stories people liked the most.

Are temporary cookies that memorize your online activities, so that the website can follow your journey through the site, rather than thinking you are a new visitor with every click. They expire as soon as you close out of a web-page.
Persistent Cookies (sometimes called permanent, stored or functionality cookies)

Persistent cookies remember this information for your next visit to the website, such as your login info, language, and currency preferences. These cookies are stored in your hard drive, they normally have an expiring date, when they will be deleted.
Third Party Cookies and Pixels
Pixels work in a similar way to cookies, they are set in certain pages and can trigger a cookie to be downloaded to your browser. They register when a particular device visits a particular page, allowing a user to be identified across sites so that relevant, targeted ads can be served.
Some of our Pixels and/or cookies will allow us to remind you of current offers of interest to you after you have left the website.
