What are cookies?
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can recognise you when you revisit and remember certain information about you. This can include which pages you have visited, choices you have made from menus, any specific information you have entered into forms and the time and date of your visit.
This website uses these types of cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies: these cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided.
- Performance cookies: these cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
Anonymous and pseudonymous cookie data
The vast majority of data stored in the cookies placed by our websites record anonymous information – that is, information that cannot be associated with an individual person. There are some occasions, like when we need to record your preferences, when we do need to record information in cookies that relate to you. However, whenever we do this, the cookie information is stored in a way that the data cannot be attributed to you, without linking it to additional information that is separately and securely stored on Amro systems. This is called pseudonymous data.
