COOKIES HELP US REMEMBER YOUR PREFERENCESYou can think of cookies like stickers. Every time you visit a site, that site puts a sticker on you so they can keep track of how many times you’ve visited, how long you’ve spent there, and what you’ve done. That lets the site show you things which are relevant to you, based on information you’ve entered and stuff you’ve looked at. The length of time stored depends on the cookie, but this is generally between a few minutes and up to two years. Cookies never store any of your banking details. We use a few different kinds of cookies:
• ‘Essential cookies’
• ‘Analytical / performance cookies’
• ‘Targeting cookies’
ESSENTIAL COOKIESThese are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website and enter into transactions.
ANALYTICAL / PERFORMANCE COOKIESThey allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. We use 3rd parties for analytics cookies.
TARGETING COOKIESThese cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed.
