Cookies are files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit. They can be used to improve your experience of using a website, for example, by remembering your language selection or 'personalising' content based on your location as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
Cookies can be first party (set by us) or third party (set by another company when you visit our website e.g. Google Analytics or advertising cookies). These are used both for the purposes of understanding user engagement and improving your experience, as well as serving more relevant content and adverts.
Websites must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you. While the information does not usually directly identify you, details such as the device, operating system and type of browser may be considered personal data as it helps to create a more personalised web experience.
