What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other 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. They also do lots of different jobs, for example, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your user experience.

How long are cookies stored for?

Persistent cookies – these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that cookie.

Session cookies – These cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session.

Functionality cookies – These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience, such as your user name, language or the region  or country you are located in, which can then provide enhanced, more personalised features.  They may also be used to provide services you used such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.
