Google analytics information allows us to see how people are using the site (how many people visit, how long people spend on each page, where people go and other site usage information). Google has access to that information if you are signed into Google as you browse. We can only see 'aggregated' results, that is, we can't identify individual people from their browsing session.

Cookies set by us

When you browse the web, each page is completely disconnected from the others: each page request is served by the server, which then forgets everything about the request. In some cases, such as when you have 10 pages of search results or when you are logged in, it’s helpful to carry information from page to page. So the server sets a session cookie that lets it remember, amongst other things, what is in your shopping basket or which page of search results you are on. This is called a ‘session’ cookie.

ASP.NET_SessionId – Deleted when you close your browser (or after 20 minutes).

To remember your accessibility settings from page to page, adjustments to the font size and low graphic style are remembered by the site. This creates the following cookies:

  • styleSheetState – 14 days
  • currentFontSize – 14 days
  • style – 1 day
