What are ‘cookies’?
‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognize you when you come back and respond appropriately.
Site performance cookies
This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on this website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:
– Volume settings for the video player;
– Whether you see the latest or the oldest article comments first;
– Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser.
Anonymous analytics cookies
Every time someone visits the website, software provided by another organisation generates an ‘anonymous analytics cookie’. These cookies can tell whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will inform if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, it generates new ones. This allows to track how many individual users the site has, and how often they visit the site. Unless you are signed in to this website, it’s not possible to use these cookies to identify individuals. They are used to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, it’s possible to know the details you provided for this, such as your username and email address.
These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and only used to help target content and advertising.
Other third party cookies
On some pages of this website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, this website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies used on this website. For example, when you share a page or post using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook) the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.
