What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are transferred on to your computer or mobile device by websites that you or your child may visit. Cookies can help make sites work, or work more efficiently by saving user information, as well as to provide information to site owners about how the site has been used.
Cookies that are used are referred to as “first-party cookies” and those that are used by our partners are “third-party cookies”. We do have third party cookies on our site but we take steps to ensure that this content is compliant and does not track our users or receive users’ personal information. If a user clicks out to third party content from our site, we are not responsible for what happens on those sites and we cannot guarantee how they operate. Please check the privacy & cookie policies of any third party site if you visit them.
Persistent cookies remain on a user's device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window.
Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Necessary cookies help make a site usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the site. The site cannot function properly without these cookies.
