WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files which a website may place on your computer or device when you visit a site. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons, pixels or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, as well as help analyse how well our Sites are performing.
PURPOSE OF COOKIES
To make suggestions and recommendations to you about goods or services that may be of interest to you
OPERATING OUR SITES
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our Sites. This includes cookies for the following purposes:
Performance – we use these cookies to monitor Site performance. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience by quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to track error messages, and to determine improvements to our Sites.
We use the following cookies:
|Description of Cookie||Purpose|

|NID||These cookies are used for the purpose of targeted advertising.|
|ANID||One of the main advertising cookies on non-Google sites is named ‘IDE‘ and is stored in browsers under the domain.|
ANALYTICAL / PERFORMANCE
We use the following analytical/performance cookies:
|Description of Cookie||Purpose|
|1P_JAR||These cookies are used to gather website statistics, and track conversion rates.|
|This cookie keeps track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site pertaining to the cookie, when their first visit was, and when their last visit occurred. Google Analytics uses the information from this cookie to calculate things like Days and Visits to purchase
|__utmb is the cookie that keeps track of timeouts and the number of page views your website gets. It also records the start time of each visit. This cookie expires at the end of 30 minutes of inactivity on the site
|This cookie is set by Google Analytics. According to their documentation it is used to throttle the request rate for the service – limiting the collection of data on high traffic sites. It expires after 10 minutes
|This is one of the four main cookies set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour and measure site performance. It is not used in most sites but is set to enable interoperability with the older version of Google Analytics code known as Urchin. In this older versions this was used in combination with the __utmb cookie to identify new sessions/visits for returning visitors. When used by Google Analytics this is always a Session cookie which is destroyed when the user closes their browser. Where it is seen as a Persistent cookie it is therefore likely to be a different technology setting the cookie.
|The __utmz cookie contains the traffic source information in Urchin tracker format. It contains information about how and when an individual visitor hits your site for the FIRST time. That means whenever the visitor comes back to your site, this value remains unchanged.
We also use third party cookies on our Sites that fall into the categories above (“third party cookies”) for the following reasons: to help us monitor traffic on our Sites (like many companies, we use Google Analytics to do this);
