What are cookies?

“Cookie” means a small file placed on your computer or device by Our Site when you visit certain parts of Our Site and/or when you use certain features of Our Site.  A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded on to your computer, or tablet/smartphone, when you visit a website. Cookies are used by most websites and can do a number of things, like; remembering your preferences, recording what you have put in your shopping basket, and counting the number of people looking at a website.

Most cookies are designed to either ensure all the website’s features work properly or to provide the website owner with anonymous information about how you use their site so they can make improvements to the user experience. These cookies are known as 1st party cookies.

3rd party cookies are usually related to advertising. Advertisers typically use this type of cookie to see which websites you have visited and then show you targeted adverts that are more relevant to you.

The rules on cookies are covered by the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. The Regulations also cover similar technologies for storing information, e.g. Flash cookies. The Regulations were revised in 2011, and the ICO is responsible for enforcing these new rules.
