What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. They help that website remember information about your visit, which can both make it easier to visit the site again and make the site more useful to you.
Third party vs first party cookies
When cookies track users across multiple websites, they’re called third-party cookies. It’s third-party cookies that most people consider problematic, since they’re used for things like remarketing campaigns.
First party cookies are only used by the website that you’re actually visiting. First-party cookies are generally considered more acceptable, and can actually be very useful. It’s first party cookies that allow a website to remember your password, for example.
What types of cookies do we use?
We do not use any third party cookies. The only cookies we use are the first party cookies which come as part of Google Analytics 4, which we use to analyse the traffic to our site.
These cookies do not
personally identify individual users. Instead, they store a unique Client ID in your browser in order to distinguish unique users and their sessions on our website. They also collect anonymised information about your browser and device. Please refer to Google Analytics 4 Data Collection
for details on what data the Google Analytics 4 cookies collect.
