What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to your computer or other device when you visit
a website. Your browser sends these cookies back to the website every time you visit the site again,
so it can recognise you and can then tailor what you see on the screen.
To provide you with the service you have asked for (Essential cookies)
For example keeping you logged in during your visit. Without cookies the site might forget
you and you'd have to constantly log back in. When you buy tickets, cookies make sure
they're still in your shopping basket when you get to the checkout.
To show adverts that are more relevant to your interests (Advertising cookies)
times you see the same advert or to show other adverts that may be more relevant to you -
often called online behavioural advertising (OBA). OBA is a way of using information
about your web-browsing activity, collected by using cookies, to group you with other users
into interest groups and show you advertisements based on those interests.
To analyse and improve your browsing experience (Analytics & Customisation cookies)
For example, for analysis purposes, we like to know what pages and links are popular and

use them to customise your visits to the site, for example to remember choices you make
such as your language or region.
