What are cookies and how do they work?

Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are created when you use your browser to visit a website that uses cookies to keep track of your movements within the site, help you resume where you left off, remember your registered login, themes selection and preferences and other customization functions.

What do you use cookies for?

Cookies are an important part of the internet. They make using websites much smoother and affect lots of the useful features of websites. There are two (2) common types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are created temporarily in your browser's subfolder when you're visiting a website. Once you leave the site, the session cookie is deleted. On the other hand, persistent cookies remain in your browser's subfolder and are activated again when you visit the website that created that particular cookie. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet. All the information that the cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. You may change your browser settings to delete and block cookies.

Improving your browsing experience

Cookies allow the website to remember choices you make, such as your language or region and they provide improved features. Here are a few examples of just some of the ways that cookies are used to improve your experience on our websites:

  • Remembering your preferences and settings, including marketing preferences
  • Remembering if you have filled in a survey, so you are not asked to do it again
  • Remembering if you have been to the site before. If you are a first-time user, you might see different content to a regular user
