Cookies and This Website

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files stored in your web browser. They were invented to make shopping carts work and so enable e-commerce. Cookies allow the website to keep track of the contents of your shopping basket as you move from one shopping page to another.

A number of websites provide more information about cookies. However, a good starting point is probably the BBC’s cookie explanation, though probably any well-known UK retailer or UK high street bank has equally good sections on this subject.

Why are Cookies Being Used on This Website?

Just as in the shopping basket case outlined above, the cookies in use on this website allow a visitor’s browsing session to be followed from page to page in the website. This, coupled with a statistics package, allows us to get insights into how the website is being used, and where visitors came from.

The statistics package that we are using is Google Analytics, a very commonly used package. In common with other statistics packages, Google Analytics uses several different cookies so that technical information about a visitor’s browsing session can be collected such as:

  • from which website the visitor came from,
  • which web pages the visitor looked at,
  • the browser used, and
  • other technical information available in the web browser such as which operating system the visitor is using.

No personal information is collected.

The information collected is stored by Google. Google explains how it safeguards the data collected and provides a link to an opt-out tool. For details of the specific cookies used, see the next section.
