What are Cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, often including a unique identifier, which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website.
There are first-party cookies which are set/provided by the website you are visiting, and third-party cookies which are set/provided by a source other than the website you are visiting.
There are persistent cookies that remain on your device after you have closed your web browser, and session cookies that are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.
Cookies are often categorised to help you to understand the function they perform and purpose they serve.
What are Tracking Technologies?
Other tracking technologies include “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs) and “embedded scripts”.
A web beacon is a small graphical image which is embedded in a web page or email.
An embedded script is a small piece of computer code that runs whilst you are interacting with a website.

Do Not Track
There is no agreed standard for “Do Not Track” requests at this moment in time, for this reason it is unlikely to deliver what is expected by those who use it and it can therefore be misleading.
For the reasons above our website does not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals/requests from your internet browser.
