Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by
enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a
‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing
your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the
interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies,
it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for
example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise
you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing
messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set
by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to
remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.
