Cookies and ‘similar technologies’
A cookie is a small file that’s downloaded on to your computer, tablet or smartphone (device) when you visit a website.
The cookies we set are called ‘first party’ cookies, but we also use ‘third party’ cookies, which are set by a domain other than the one you are visiting. Cookies do lots of different things, like helping us to remember your preferences, showing us how our website is being used so we can make it better, and helping make sure our adverts are more relevant to you.
You can delete cookies, but how you do it is different from device to device. Check your browser settings to see how to delete them from yours. If you change your cookie preferences and decline some, this won’t delete those cookies from your device, but will mean they are inactive.
