What are cookies?
When people use some website, they keep track of what they do, just like organisations keep track of how customers/people use their business.
This involves keeping a log of activity on their web servers and, where necessary placing cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small piece of information, like a number or short piece of text, which your browser can store on behalf of a visited website.
The cookies organisations use and how they use them
Some of the cookies organisations use are essential for parts of the website to operate and have already been set. You may delete and block all cookies from these sites, but parts of the site will then not work as intended and you may not be able to use, or access them or your account. See the information below to find out more about the cookies companies use and how to delete them.
Essential site cookies
These cookies are required for the website to work and have to be set for the customer to be able to access the site and navigate around.
First party analytic cookies
These cookies are used to track the customer journey on the website. This data derived from the ‘session’ and ‘analytical’ cookies will be used for detailed analysis of the website to improve the way the site works, and to help companies identify how they can improve the online experience and usability of their website.
Secure areas only:
Companies have cookies which are used to manage the customer log in for the website. These are required to authenticate the customer and you can’t log in to the secure area without them. Sometimes a permanent cookie is used to support fraud monitoring of applications to protect the customer from fraudulent account activity.
User interaction / experience cookies
Some websites have ‘quick login’ and ‘personal details’ cookies, which are used to pre-populate Name, DOB and postcode so the customer only has to re-key their chosen personal detail and password.
Some cookies are used to enable the customers to use online products, they detect what products they have registered and whether that information needs refreshing. They are essential for the service the customer has requested.
