Types of cookies

Here’s a list of types of cookies we use and how we use them:

Session cookies These enable you to carry out some essential functions on our sites, such as maintaining log in details for the session or a transaction. They also help by minimising the need to transfer information across the internet. They are not stored on your computer and they expire when you terminate your browser session.
Tracking cookies These enable us to recognise repeat visitors to the site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, we’re able to record specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path you take through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to our sites. We use Google Analytics software to analyse page use, page interactions and the routes our customers take through our sites. These are known as ‘web metrics’. We don’t record any personal information during your visit unless the information has been knowingly and willingly provided by you.
Persistent cookies A persistent cookie is one that remains on your machine past the point of session expiration. It is stored on disk and is used for us to remember you between visits. Usually persistent cookies are created by setting an expiration date on the cookie, so that the browser doesn’t remove it until the cookie is set to expire.
