What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone (device) from a website’s computer and is stored on your device as a tiny text file.
Every website can send cookies to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, and (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access and use the cookies that your online preferences have allowed to be stored on your device, via your browser settings.
Cookies fall into two main categories, first party cookies and third party cookies:
- First party cookies are related directly to the website domain being viewed.
- Third party cookies are associated with content contained in the website being viewed, but which originate from a different website domain.
Many websites use both types of cookie when a user visits in order to track online ‘traffic’.
Cookies can record information about your online preferences, allow a website to be tailored to your interests and to track what a user views or buys. Users have the opportunity to set their device browsers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time.
The last of these settings means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of a website’s features.
You can disable cookies at any time by managing cookies in your browser’s settings.
We’re giving you this information to comply with legislation, and to make sure we’re transparent about your privacy when using our website.

We use both first party and third party cookies on our website.

For example: if on a previous visit you went to our ‘Our Work’ page, we might find this out from your cookies and choose to highlight further information about this on your subsequent visits.
- Third party cookies are used to make our sharing buttons work. For example, to tweet via twitter.com
We don’t use intrusive cookies, for example to serve up third party adverts.
Please note that our cookies can’t harm your computer, and we don’t store personally identifiable information in them, such as email address.
