Types of cookie
These are the different types of cookie that websites, in general, can set:
These are cookies which are required to operate the website, e.g. to remember your cookie permission setting; to gather information you input into contact forms, newsletter and other forms across all pages; and to manage the Google reCaptcha security system used on forms.
These are used to recognise you when you return to a website so that they can personalise your experience and remember your preferences, e.g. to remember social media settings; to remember selected region and country.
This website uses some functional cookies, e.g. to remember how you have previous interacted with the Updates feature (managed by a tool called Beamer).
These allow websites to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This helps sites to improve the way they work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily and and by developing content, services and products to better suit their interests. Analytics cookies are used to track metrics like the pages visited, time spent on each page, and links clicked.
This website uses Hockeystack to anonymously analyse how visitors use it. This tool does not set any cookies and also it doesn't store IP addresses.
These cookies record your visit to a website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. They are used to make the website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. Sometimes this information is also shared with third parties so that they can provide advertising that is tailored for your interests on their platforms.
