2. Cookies overview
We use the term cookie to refer to all technologies which store and access information on the device that you use to access our sites, such as your computer, tablet, or mobile phone.
There are different types of cookies. Cookies served by the entity that operates the domain you are visiting are called “first party cookies”. So cookies served by us while you are on this site, are first party cookies. Cookies served by companies that are not operating the domain you’re visiting are called “third party cookies.” So, for example, we may allow Google to set a cookie on your browser while you visit this site – that would be a third party cookie.
Cookies may also last for different periods of time. “Session cookies” only last as long as your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are “persistent cookies” meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. For example, they may recognise your device when you re-open your browser and browse the internet again.
3. Your choices
You have the right to choose whether or not to accept cookies. However, they are an important part of how our sites work, so you should be aware that if you choose to refuse or remove cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our services.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. To do so, please follow the instructions provided by your browser which are usually located within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” facility. Some third parties also provide the ability to refuse their cookies directly by clicking on an opt-out link, and we have indicated where this is possible in the table below.
