4. Use of Cookies

4.1 Cookies are small text files that Web sites often store on computer hard drives of visitors to their sites. They are widely used in order to make Web sites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

4.2 A cookie contains a unique number, which is used to recognize your computer when a user of your computer returns to a Web site that it visited previously. We use cookies to enhance the online experience of our visitors, for statistical purposes and to better understand how our sites are used. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our sites before or whether you are a new visitor.

4.3 There are two broad categories of cookies – ‘first party cookies’ and ‘third party cookies’. First party cookies are cookies that are served directly by the Web site operator to your computer, and are used only by the Web site operator to recognise your computer when it revisits that site. Third party cookies are served by a service provider on behalf of the Web site operator, and can be used by the service provider to recognise your computer when it visits other Web sites. Third party cookies are most commonly used for Web site analytics or advertising purposes.
