A cookie is a small text file that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device when you access this website. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies are downloaded on to a device when the user accesses certain websites and are also useful because they allow the websites to recognise a user’s device. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit.

First and third-party cookies — whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time — the website displayed in the URL window. Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies — these cookies remain on a user’s device until you erase them or for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are stored on a users’ device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.

Session cookies — these 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. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.

How to control cookies

Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can control and/ or delete cookies as you wish, via your browser’s settings (often found in your browser’s Tools or Preferences menu). You may also delete cookies from your device at any time. However, please be aware that if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to fully experience some of the Sites’ features. If you want to learn more about the general uses of cookies, including how to stop them being stored by your computer, please visit Cookiepedia – all about cookies and/ or allaboutcookies.org.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
