It also includes how users came to the website (which search engine and search terms were used, which links were clicked on) and the user's navigation on the website (number of visits, dates and times of visits, time spent on the website, which pages have been loaded etc.). A tracking cookie from Google is also used to protect users from known malicious sites.

  • We use a number of user identification targeting cookies, which register a unique ID identifying a returning user’s device. This ID can be used to deliver targeted adverts. In some cases, cookies will categorise the user's interest and demographic profiles (based on the pages they have visited) in terms of resales for targeted marketing. Other details which may be registered by cookies include purchase details, website navigation, IP address, geographical location, visited websites and the adverts a user has clicked. In some cases the ID may be linked to other data (including data from surveys and psychographic, demographical and geographical data) for the purpose of personalising content, adverts and communications with the user. The ID may also be used to identify the user during return visits across websites that use the same advert network, for the purposes of targeted adverts. Targeted adverts may include video clips.
