Types of cookies
The length of time a cookie stays on your device depends on its type. We use two types of cookies on our websites.

  • Session (Transient) cookies: these cookies are erased when you close your browser and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.
  • Persistent (Permanent/Stored) cookies: these cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e., based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.

Controlling Cookies
Visitors may wish to restrict the use of cookies, or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behaviour such as the length of time they are stored, either through built-in functionality or by utilising third-party plugins.
