What is a 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. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu for a video about cookies visit www.google.co.uk/goodtoknow/data-on-the-web/cookies.

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

Google Analytics and Cookies

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help us analyse how users use our site. Essentially, a cookie is a small data file able to track the online movements of an individual. This information could potentially be used to build an online profile of individuals and uniquely locate them in the world.

Google may use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the web site, compiling reports on web site activity for us and providing other services relating to web site activity and internet usage.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. By using this web site, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above

We may also provide you with the opportunity to share information with others using social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. We update and increase this content from time to time to improve the user experience. As a result, you may be sent cookies from these other websites.
