Cookies may be either 'persistent' cookies or 'session' cookies, depending on how long they are used. To stop us setting these cookies you will need to set up your browser to reject all cookies.
Persistent cookies: These cookies stay on your device after you have closed your browser, and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences. They are activated every time you visit the website where the cookie was generated. Sometimes persistent cookies are used by websites to provide targeted advertising based on your browsing history. They are stored by the browser and remain valid until their set expiry date (unless you delete the cookie before its expiry date).
Session cookies: These only last as long as you’re on the website, and they’re deleted when you close your browser. They help us keep track of things like how a particular device is navigating from page to page. This supports the website’s security or basic functionality.
Many of the cookies we use are session cookies. They help us to ensure that your session is secure, and allow you to stay signed in while you move between pages.
Most of our cookies don't store personal data or sensitive information, such as your name, address or payment details, they simply hold the 'key' that, once you're signed in, is associated with this information; therefore the information collected is anonymous. We only collect personal identifiable information through cookies with your consent, for example, you will always have to provide your consent by an affirmed action before personal data is processed by a cookie for any reason not included in this Policy.
