WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto ‘terminal equipment’ (e.g. a computer or smartphone) when the user accesses a website. It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions. Cookies have a very limited function and are by no means compiled and thus cannot execute functions or make copies of themselves. Cookies cannot browse or scan through your computer or device. Cookies cannot access your any information from you unless you have specifically chosen to do so. Cookies simply unlock a computer's memory and allow a website to recognise users when they return to a site by opening doors to different content or services. It is technically impossible for cookies to read personal information.
First-Party And Third-Party Cookies
Cookies are either first-party or third party. A first-party cookie is one that is set by the website a customer is visiting. The information collected is only accessible by the website they are viewing. A third-party cookie is a cookie provided by an external service provider, who will set their cookies on a website.
These kinds of cookies help websites to remember your information and settings when you revisit the website at a later date. This improves functionality and speed of use. Basic examples of ‘persistent cookies’ extend to authentication, language selection, menu preferences, internal site bookmarks and favourites amongst many others. We do use persistent cookies.
These kinds of cookies allow websites to track visitor’s movement from page to page so you are not required to input the same information you may have provided previously when using the website. Session cookies allows for quicker navigation of the website without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area visited. An example of a Session Cookie is apparent when saving ‘goods’ to an online shopping basket allowing you to navigate to other pages while retaining information on the goods already selected for the checkout function.
Accepting or Rejecting Cookies
In most cases, a customer can choose to accept or decline cookies. This can also be achieved within their browser settings. For more information they can navigate to the base of this policy. However, in accordance with the law, some cookies can be stored if they are strictly necessary for the operation of the website. All other cookies must first obtain the customer’s consent.
