Cookie Policy

Cookies are the term given to text files that are stored on your computer by websites to store and track information.

Cookies contain a cookie ID, which is a unique identifier of a specific cookie. It consists of information that needs to be stored and later retrieved by a website. Cookies data can only be read by the web browser that created them, for example, Internet Explorer wouldn’t be able to access Google Chrome cookies and vice versa.

Types of Cookies

  • Session Management – These cookies are for remembering login details, products within an online shopping cart and anything used to maintain a session between you and the website
  • Personalisation – These cookies are used to store user preferences for sites, setting and using a different theme on a website and other personalisation settings
  • Tracking – These cookies are used to record and analyse website visitor behaviour to improve the website

How are cookies used?

Cookies are often used to track website visitor activity, but they do have other uses. When you visit a website, the web server generates a cookie that acts as an identification card. Every time to revisit the website, your web browser sends the cookie back to the server for processing.

Only the website that generates a cookie can read it, so other web servers are unable to access your information from other cookies. Additionally, web servers can only use the data stored within the cookie, and it doesn’t have access to anything else.
