What is a “cookie”?

All of our web pages use “cookies”. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we place on your computer or mobile device if you agree.

These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website to make your experience browsing our site as smooth as possible and enables us to improve our website. If you do not allow cookies some features on this website may not function in the way they were intended.

We use cookies principally because we want to make our websites and mobile applications user-friendly, and we are interested in anonymous user behaviour. Our cookies don’t store sensitive or personally identifiable information such as your name and address.

What types of cookie are there and which ones do we use?

There are two types of cookie:

  • Persistent cookies remain on a user’s device for a set period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
  • Session cookies are temporary. They allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Cookies also have, broadly speaking, four different functions and can be categorised as follow: ‘strictly necessary’ cookies, ‘performance’ cookies, ‘functionality’ cookies and ‘targeting’ or ‘advertising’ cookies.

Types of cookies we use

We use the following types of cookies:

  • strictly necessary cookies– these are essential in to enable you to move around the websites and use their features. Because these cookies are strictly necessary we do not need to ask for your consent to use them.
  • performance cookies– collect data for statistical purposes on how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often; they don’t contain personal information such as names and email addresses, and are used to improve your user experience of a website. We use this information to improve our website and to aid us in investigating problems raised by visitors. Some of these are analytics cookies, set using third party web analytics software, which allow us to monitor our website traffic. We use Google Analytics. These analytics cookies may also tell us how many of our visitors are male or female, and may summarise the number of visitors who fall within certain age ranges, or certain interest categories. However, this sort of information is not linked to any individual; it just shows us what percentage of our visitors fall in particular categories.

  • advertising and targeting cookiesare used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you, but can also limit the number of times you see an advertisement, and be used to chart the effectiveness of an ad campaign by tracking users’ clicks. At times we may enable advertising cookies, these would be set to track and monitor the effectiveness of ad related activity (e.g. by using statistical analysis cookies for tracking Google Pay-Per-Click campaigns). You can choose whether or not to allow these cookies to be set in cookie settings.

The two main ways we use advertising and targeting cookies are set out below:

  • Interest-based advertising (or online behavioural advertising) is where cookies are placed on your device by our third party service providers which remember your web browsing activity and group together your interests in order to provide you with targeted advertisements which are more relevant to you when you visit independent.co.uk.  Your previous web browsing activity can also be used to infer things about you, such as your demographics (age, gender etc.). This information may also be used to make the advertising on independent.co.uk more relevant to you.
  • ‘Retargeting’ is a form of interest-based advertising that enables our advertising partners to show you advertisements selected based on your online browsing activity away from the website.  This allows companies to advertise to people who previously visited their website. These cookies will usually be placed on your device by third-party advertising networks and we have listed the main third party networks we work with below.

Social Cookies (including YouTube)

This may set cookies on your computer once you click on the YouTube video player, but YouTube will not store personally-identifiable cookie information for playbacks of embedded videos. We may use social widgets to enhance visitor interaction on our site. This collects non-personally identifiable information from many of the websites in which it is enabled, and uses that information to deliver targeted advertising on other websites you may visit.
