Cookies

In order to comply with new EU rules, The Ident Gallery uses a system of classifying the different types of cookies which are used on the site, or which may be used by third parties through the site. The classification was developed by the International Chamber of Commerce UK and explains more about which cookies are used, why they are used, and the functionality you may 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 phone or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating site on each subsequent visit, or to another site that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a site to recognise a user's device.

Persistent cookies remain on a user's device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the site that created that particular cookie.

Session cookies 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. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user's experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
