What are Cookies?

Cookies are small files which are transmitted to internet browsers from a website that you visit. They are often used to store personal preferences, identify on-site visitor behavior and retain authentication information including passwords and log-in details.

The vast majority of cookies are completely harmless and enhance your browsing experience. Many sites will actually not work properly without having cookies enabled.

Cookies are retained for either a fixed time period on your device or for the duration of your visit to a website. There are generally two different types of cookie:

First Party Cookies
Third Party Cookies

First Party Cookies

First party cookies are generated by the domain you visit and, in most cases, contain a small amount of text in a file on your device. Such cookies enable site owners/administrators to track your behavior while on their website.

They also enhance user experience by keeping information that helps with usage, such as automatic logins and/or shopping basket storage. They are usually enabled by default in most web browsers and do not contain personal information.

Third Party Cookies

Third party cookies are usually associated to different domains and are set by third parties for tracking and re-targeting purposes. Many third party cookies are utilised by analytical packages like Clicky or Google. Third party cookies only differ from first-party cookies by the actual domain to which they are associated with.
