What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small text files that can be used by websites to make a user’s experience more efficient. A cookie is downloaded on to your computer, smartphone or other electronic device when you access certain websites. The cookies are downloaded by your internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website from the same device, the cookies and the information in it are either sent back to the originating website (first-party cookies) or to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookies). By that, the website can detect that it has already been opened using this browser, and in some cases, it will then vary the content it shows.
The cookies that we use fall into four categories:
Necessary cookies are required to enable technical site functionality and to provide the services explicitly requested by you. This includes services such as your selected country and language, keeping you logged in, having digital item lists stored while you browse, remembering volume settings, and you getting access to secure areas of the website. These cookies do not gather information about you and do not remember where you have been on the internet. This category of cookies cannot be disabled and does not require consent.
Functional cookies make it possible to save information that changes the way websites appear or act.
Statistical cookies are optional and collect information about how visitors use and experience our website in order to optimise design, efficiency and to improve your user experience.
Marketing cookies are used to collect cookies about your interests, including which sites and ads you click on, which products and services you are interested in, or purchase, on this and other websites or apps. We do this to personalise marketing both within our website, other websites, apps and on social media.
