What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your browsing device, e.g. a computer or smartphone, when you visit a website. Cookies can be recognised by the website that downloaded them, or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.
Cookies do lots of functions, like helping us understand how the website is being used, letting users navigate between pages effectively, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
In this policy, we also use the term cookie to refer to similar technologies such as pixel tags. A pixel tag (also known as a web beacon) is a small string of code that represents a clear graphic image and is used in conjunction with a cookie. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on web pages or in emails. A pixel tag allows us to capture certain additional types of information about a visitor’s actions on a web site, such as a visitor’s cookie number, the time, date, duration and number of page views, a description of the page where the tag is placed and details about any items that were purchased. Pixel tags help us analyse our customers’ online behaviour and measure the effectiveness of our website and our advertising. We work with service providers that help us track, collect and analyse this information.
