What are cookies and what other technologies will we use?
"Cookies": A cookie is a small piece of information which is sent to your browser and stays on your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. Cookies do not damage your device, they are merely used to 'remember' you when you visit again. Cookies alone cannot be used to identify you.
A cookie will transport information about how you use our website to us. The cookie itself does not keep any of the data it collects.
Apart from cookies we also use “local storage” and “tags” to help us enhance your browsing experience.
"Local storage": This information is stored locally on your machine (within your browser) in the same way as cookies, history, saved pages, etc. Like cookies, local storage contains 'name/value' pairs (i.e. postcode / "BR1 1BY", surname / "Smith"). A web page can only access data stored locally within its domain.
Unlike cookies, the information collected by local storage is not sent to an internet server unless there is a specific reason for us to store the data collected (i.e. for the purposes of analytics).
"Tags": A tag is a small piece of code which is placed on our website and collects data. This code will only collect data on our website. A tag will not be stored on your browser. However, it may use a cookie which could be placed on your browser.
'SessionCam': A SessionCam may record mouse clicks, mouse movements, page scrolling and text keyed into website forms. No personal or payment data is collected with this technology. Data collected from the SessionCam web site is used to improve our website usability. The information collected is stored and is used for aggregated and statistical reporting. For more information please visit http://www.sessioncam.com/
Note that you can disable advertising retargeting cookies at the Online Choices website

What types of cookies do we use?
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you may wish to use, such as shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
Within this category, we use a 'Session ID' cookie to maintain a user's session and allow data to be passed between different online forms. This type of cookie exists only for the duration of the user's session.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages are visited most often. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. The information collected is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. These cookies are only used to improve how a website works or the effectiveness of a marketing campaign.
Within this category, we use analytics cookies for website analysis and a testing platform to monitor and optimise the website. These cookies capture anonymous data about a user's journey and aggregate this data to analyse trends. These cookies last longer than the user's session so that we can understand whether a user is a first time, or a returning visitor.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal, features.
For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services that you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect can be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Thank you for visiting our website.
