So what are cookies? They sound yummy.
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser on your device (whether tablet, laptop, phone or computer). The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from our site.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. Do not worry, we never share this information with any third parties.

What type of cookies are you giving me?
There are two types of cookies:
Session Cookie: Session cookies are created temporarily in your browser's subfolder while you're visiting a website. They allow a site to 'remember' content from page to page, e.g. the shopping basket. These cookies expire when you leave the site or close the browser.
Persistent Cookie: Persistent cookie files remain in your browser's subfolder and are activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie.
A persistent cookie remains in the browser's subfolder for the duration period set within the cookie's file. They have a defined TTL (Time To Live) and will expire after this time.
