There are various first party and third party Cookies may be placed on your computer or device: such as
Strictly Necessary Cookies
A cookie falls into this category if it is essential to the operation of your website. Strictly necessary cookies may, for example, be required for functions such as logging in, storing items in a shopping basket, or enabling payment transactions.
Understanding how Users use your website can be extremely valuable. Analytics cookies provide insights into many factors such as how Users are navigating around the site and what features they are using. Analytics cookies may often be set by third parties.
Many websites offer personalisation and other useful features such as content customisation. Functionality cookies enable such features. For auditing purposes, however, it is important not to confuse these with the strictly necessary variety. If the site can be used properly without the cookie, it isn’t strictly necessary.
It is important to know when and how often someone visits your website, and which parts of it they have used (including which pages they have visited and which links they have followed). As with analytics cookies, targeting cookies allow you to better understand your Users, enabling you to make your site and, more importantly, the advertising on it more relevant to those Users’ interests. Targeting cookies may often be set by third parties.
First Party Cookies
As the name suggests, these cookies are placed directly by your website (as opposed to those placed by third party services, for which see below). Most of your strictly necessary and functionality cookies will likely be first party cookies.
Third Party Cookies
These cookies are placed by third parties providing services such as advertising [e.g AdChoice ] and analytics. Analytics and targeting cookies are common types of third party cookie as such services are often not undertaken in-house.
Any of the cookies listed above may be a persistent cookie. Persistent cookies are those which remain active on a user’s computer or device for a predetermined period of time and are activated when that user visits your website.
Any of the cookies listed above may be a session cookie. Session cookies are temporary and only remain on a user’s computer or device from the point at which they visit your website until the web browser is closed, at which point they are removed.
1.6 Our Site uses analytics services. Website analytics refers to a set of tools used to collect and analyse usage statistics, enabling Us to better understand how people use Our Site. This, in turn, enables Us to improve Our Site and the [products and] services offered through it. You do not have to allow Us to use these Cookies, however whilst Our use of them does not pose any risk to your privacy or your safe use of Our Site, it does enable Us to continually improve Our Site, making it a better and more useful experience for you.
1.7 The analytics service(s) used by Our Site use(s) Cookies to gather the required information. [Certain of these Cookies may be placed immediately when you first visit Our Site and it may not be possible for Us to obtain your prior consent. You may remove these Cookies and prevent future use of them by following the steps set out below in section 1.9.]
1.8 The analytics service(s) used by this Website use(s) various types of Cookies.

By default, most internet browsers accept Cookies but this can be changed. For further details, please consult the help menu in your internet browser or the documentation that came with your device.
1.10 You can choose to delete Cookies at any time however you may lose any information that enables you to access Our Site more quickly and efficiently including, but not limited to, login and personalisation settings.
