What are cookies?

Cookies are simple text files that most websites store on your computer or mobile device when you access a site. Only the particular website server is able to retrieve or read the contents of the cookies it sets. Cookies contain anonymous information and allow a website to remember things about your visit to the site, such as what brought you to the site, your preferences or what's in your shopping basket. Some are placed only for the particular session and 'self destruct' when you end the browser session, others stay on your PC for a set period (typically a few months, but it can be longer) even after you have logged off.

 

Do we use cookies?

Yes, we do. We store two first party cookies on your computer - the first of which is known as a session cookie. This cookie is called 'PHPSESSID'. It stores absolutely no personal information about you and is used purely for analytical purposes so we can see what brought you to our website. The second first party cookie is called usaybusi_cookie and is used for analytical purposes for us to understand how you use our website. There are also third party cookies set by both Twitter and Google in order to use their social buttons located at the bottom of the page.

 

How to remove cookies?

If you would still like to remove cookies, we have a guide on our website here.
