A cookie is a tiny piece of data stored on your computer and managed by your web browser at the request of a
website. Cookies are very useful to a website because they help the website remember important things like
what items you have in your shopping basket, what special offers you might be eligible for and whether you
are logged in. Cookies are also used to help improve a website by using a unique
(anonymous) value to help the site owner identify the most popular content, measure site performance and how
often users visit. Websites often use services from other companies to help with this analysis and the
cookies used by these other companies on the website owner's behalf are called third-party cookies. Because
cookies are managed by your web browser if you move to a different device or browser software the cookies
won't come along. You will need to log into a website again on your mobile device, for instance, even though
you are logged in on your desktop computer already. Each device and web browser will have its own set of
cookies that might be different.
We classify the cookies we use on our websites based on what they do and whether they are essential to the
working of the website. You can disable any or all of the cookies we use via your web browser preferences
but disabling certain cookies will prevent our sites from offering functionality you want to use.
Required cookies. Without these cookies some or all of our websites won't work the way

Convenience cookies. Without these cookies you can still use our websites but you might miss
out on special offers and you might not see personalisations you have made to your Control Panel.
Analytical cookies. These cookies are not needed for you to use our sites but they do help
us improve sites to make them easier to use and faster.
