There are various types of cookies that are used to fulfil many functions.

Below is an outline of some the terminology used when discussing cookies

First Party Cookies:

Cookies which are set by our own website, and only read by our own website. These cookies store information mainly regarding your preferences, usage, to identify your browser or media player or to maintain session information.

Third Party Cookies:

Cookies which are set by another domain but are read by code on our website. These cookies often track your internet use across a number of sites and can be used to profile you for advertising networks.

Session Cookies:

Temporary Cookies which only last for the duration of your online session. These generally are used to ensure you’re connected to the correct server when using a load balancer.  Or to remember session preferences

Persistent Cookies:

Cookies which remain on your device after you’ve finished your online session. For example we may set a unique identifier for your browser so it’s trusted the next time you visit our site.  This is standard practice to secure our websites against Denial of Service attacks.

Necessary Cookies:

Cookies which are required for our websites to work.  E.g. cookies for load balancers, login, cookies acceptance, Player and browser ID etc.

Advertising cookies are used to monitor your internet usage and target ads which are more relevant to you.  These are mainly third party cookies from advertiser networks.

 

2. Cookies on our site

First party cookies are set by the digital site you are visiting. And only that site can read them.   We only use cookies to provide the specific services you request, to remember your preferences, and to improve and update our digital services. Some are temporary such as session cookies and are deleted after you finish browsing. Where your preferences are to be remembered in the future persistent cookies are used unless you choose to delete them. Sometimes third parties place cookies like advertising banners – these are known as third party cookies.
