On 26 May 2012, the amended Privacy and Electronic Communications regulation comes into force in the UK and EU. The Cookie Law requires websites to obtain informed consent from visitors before they can store or retrieve any information on a computer or any other web connected device that is not essential to the running of the website.
With this in mind we have put together some information about Cookies and how they are used on our website.
A cookie is a small file with information that a website puts on your hard disk. This is usually in order to remember something about you at a later time. Cookies can store lots of information which can have privacy implications, some cookies will record your preferences and are commonly used to rotate banner adverts, so the user receives different adverts based on previous website activity.
Cookies can be persistent or sessional. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or other web enabled device until they expire, some time in the future. These are still available when you re visit a website. Sessional cookies are deleted as soon as you leave the current website (end the current session).
