What many types of Cookies are there?

Cookies are either ‘persistent’ or ‘session’ cookies, depending on how long they are stored for:


Persistent cookies are saved on your device for a fixed period of time after the browser has closed and are activated each time you visit the website where the cookie was generated.


Session cookies are only stored for the duration of your visit to a website and are deleted from your device when you close your browser.


Therefore, they are divided in:


Strictly Necessary Cookies are cookies which are essential for the running of our websites. Without these cookies, parts of our websites would not function.  These cookies do not track where you have been on the internet and do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes.


Analytical Performance Cookies - are used to monitor the performance of our websites, for example, to determine the number of page views and the number of unique users a website has.  Web analytics services may be designed and operated by third parties.  The information provided by these cookies allows us to analyse patterns of user behaviour and we use that information to enhance user experience or identify areas of the website which may require maintenance.  The information is anonymous and it is only used for statistical purposes.


Functional Cookies - are used to remember your preferences on our websites and to provide enhanced, more personal features. The information collected by these cookies is usually anonymised, so we cannot identify you personally.


Third-party Cookies - is one that is placed on a user’s hard disk  by a Web site from a domain other than the one a user is visiting.


Behavioural Advertising Cookies - This is often called online behavioural advertising (OBA) and is done by grouping together shared interests based upon web browsing history. Your web browsing history can be used to infer things about you (e.g. your age, gender etc.), and this information may also be used to make advertising on websites more relevant to you.  Although behavioural advertising cookies can track your activity around the internet they cannot identify you personally, even if you are signed in to our website.


Why do we use cookies?

To measure general user behaviour across our sites and third party sites to build a profile based on users browsing patterns so that we and third parties can target advertising to users that will be more relevant to users’ interests.  This means that if, for example, users visit a page with a review about a particular camera then the cookie will collect this information and we may target adverts for that camera to those users and, if users visit third party sites that are part of the same advertising network, those third parties may target adverts for that camera to those users.
