WHAT IS A WEBSITE COOKIE?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

WHY ARE COOKIE POLICIES REQUIRED?

A new Cookie law was introduced in May 2011 (enforced from May 2012 in the UK) concerning storage and access to cookies and similar technologies. The policy allows organisations to use ‘implied consent’ to comply. This means users do not have to make an explicit choice. Instead, their continued use of a site would be taken to mean they are happy for information to be gathered.
