- About Cookies
What Are “Cookies”
“Cookies” are small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. They help the website remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.
Cookies can be most broadly distinguished in: first & third party cookies
First party cookies
First party cookies are set by the website, you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.
Third party cookies
Third party cookies are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company who will set their own cookie to perform this service.
Session Cookies are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.
This type of cookie is saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and is not deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies are used where website need to know who you are for more than one browsing session.
Many websites use Adobe Flash Player to deliver video and game content to their users. Adobe utilise their own cookies, which are not manageable through your browser settings but are used by the Flash Player for similar purposes, such as storing preferences or tracking users.
Flash Cookies work in a different way to web browser cookies (the cookie types listed above are all set via your browser); rather than having individual cookies for particular jobs, a website is restricted to storing all data in one cookie. You can control how much data can be stored in that cookie but you cannot choose what type of information is allowed to be stored.
Site performance cookies
This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on the website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit.
- volume settings for our video player
- whether you see the latest or the oldest article comments first
- video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser
Anonymous analytics cookies
Every time someone visits some websites, software provided by another organisation generates an anonymous analytics cookie’.
These cookies can tell whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users a website has, and how often they visit the site.
Unless you are signed in to a website these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals. They are used to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, websites will also know the details you gave for this, such as your username and email address.
These cookies are used by software, which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and it is used only to help target content – such as whether you see our UK or US home page – and advertising.
When you register with a particular site, some cookies are generated to let webmasters know whether you are signed in or not.
Servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post with your username.
If you have not selected ‘keep me signed in’, your cookies get deleted when you either close your browser or shut down your computer.
While you are signed into either of the sites, information from your registration cookies might be combined with analytics cookies, which can be used to identify which pages you have seen on the site.
First party advertising cookies
These cookies allows the website you are visiting to know whether or not you’ve seen an advert or a type of advert, and how long it is since you’ve seen it.
Third party advertising cookies
A lot of the advertisements you see on websites you are visiting are provided by other organisations. Some of these organisations use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.
Other third party cookies
On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies we use on our website.
For example, when you share an article using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook), the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.
What types of cookie do we use on our website?
A visit to a page on our website may generate the following types of cookie:
- Anonymous analytical cookies
- Facebook pixel cookies for Facebook Ads
- Google analytics and ads cookies
How do I turn cookies off?
