HOW COOKIES (AND RELATED TECHNOLOGIES) ARE USED ON OUR SERVICES
Cookies are used on our services for the following purposes:
– As ‘Strictly Necessary’ to run the Service. Some cookies are necessary for effective operation of the service. For example to enable you to navigate the service, to remember your cookie preferences, to keep our service secure and for system administration, such as preventing fraudulent or disruptive activity;
– To provide additional functionality that improves your experience or that you have requested. For example, to remember your preferences and settings.
– To personalise advertising shown to you on the service. Some of our services carry advertising, some of which may be personalised, which helps us to pay for creating and delivering content to you. Advertising on this website is managed on our behalf by our publishing partner, Immediate Media.
We may also allow advertisers to use their own marketing data to target advertising campaigns on this service and as a result, you may see advertising based upon website content you have been viewing on another website. For example, a retailer might use information about the products you browsed on their website in order to tailor their advert to you on this website.
We are committed to following best practices in our use of online behavioural targeting technology and we at all times seek to comply with applicable regulatory frameworks.

GLOSSARY: WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Web Browser Cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website or technology provider to your computer or mobile device where it is stored by your web browser. The cookie stores a unique identifier, a string of characters, which enables a website or technology provider to recognise your browser or device, for example when you revisit a page or site or click on a link or advert.
Cookies may be stored by the website you are visiting (a “first party cookie”) or by another organisation providing services to that website, such as an analytics company, advertising network or social media platform (a “third-party cookie”). They will either be stored for the duration of your visit (a “session cookie”) or they will remain on your device for a fixed period (usually several months, or longer) to remember you across multiple browsing sessions (a “persistent cookie”).
Other types of local storage, such as Adobe Flash Cookies and HTML5 Storage
Many websites use local storage technologies that are similar to cookies but enable larger amounts of data to be stored. This means they can store information like your preferences, game data and viewing history on your device rather than on their own systems.
Tracking technologies, such as web beacons and page tags
Website publishers and technology providers use embedded code to record how you interact with them (recognising your browser/device via the unique ID stored in their cookie or the device Advertising ID). They are used to help website and app publishers to better analyse and improve their services and to target advertising based on your browsing behaviour and interests. For example, by knowing which web pages you visit or which elements of a page you viewed, when and for how long, whether you viewed and/or clicked on an advert on the site or whether you opened or clicked on marketing emails sent to you.
