GU68 Engineers Trust uses a system of classifying the types of cookies used on its website. This policy explains more about which cookies are used, why they are used, and the functionality you will lose if you decide you don’t want to have them on your device.
WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
HOW LONG ARE COOKIES STORED FOR?
Cookies perform several functions, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience.
Persistent cookies remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that you visit that website, as it created this particular cookie.
Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
