How long do cookies last?


When a web server sends a cookie, it asks your browser to keep that particular cookie until a certain date and time. These dates can be:

•   Some date in the future – which might be a few minutes or a few hours from now (to track something like your shopping cart in an online store). The cookie might expire many years in the future, to keep track of your browser for a long time.

•   When you close your browser – this is called a session cookie, the next time you start your browser these will have vanished.

•   Some date in the past – this is how the server asks a browser to remove a previously-stored cookie.

•   Our own cookies 


We use cookies to make our website work including:

•   Remembering if you have accepted our terms and conditions.

•   Remembering if we have already asked you certain questions.

Site improvement cookies


We regularly test new designs or site features on our sites. We may do this by showing slightly different versions of our websites to different people and anonymously monitoring how our site visitors respond to these different versions.
