A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

Control uses this type of information to help improve the services it provides to its website users. Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:
Essential cookies: Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website, for example cookies which enable an online shopping basket to store items, or facilitate essential security functions relating to data protection.
Performance Cookies: We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our website and to monitor website performance.
