What is a Cookie?

  • Cookies are small text files they are stored by your browser onto your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (eg by remembering your user preferences).
  • Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you do not want information collected this way, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookies feature (please read section 4 below for more details about how to do this).
  • We work with other third party organisations to provide the services on our website. A third party is an organisation which is not hosted at the domain address in your browser when you visit our website. These third parties may also use cookies on our website and can also place cookies on your device without you visiting their website directly. If you would like more information about third party cookies, please read section 3 below.
  • The two types of cookies we use are known as session cookies and persistent cookies. These may be cookies which we use and/or a third party uses.
    • Session Cookie

      A session cookie is used each time you visit our website to give you a session ID. We use this type of cookie to link your actions on our website and each session cookie will only last for a browser session, at the end of which it will expire. Each browser session will start when you open your browser window and finish when you close your browser window. After your visit to our website all session cookies are deleted. Each time you visit our website you will have a different session ID.

    • Persistent Cookie

      A persistent cookie allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or across different sites) to be remembered. It has a longer lifetime than a session cookie and lasts for the period of time specified in the cookie (this will vary from cookie to cookie). This type of cookie will not be deleted when you close your browser window and will be stored on your computer or mobile device. It will be activated every time you visit a website which created that particular persistent cookie.

 

Cookies We Use

To help you understand the cookies we use on our website, we have classified each cookie as one of the following:

  • strictly necessary cookie;
  • performance cookie;
  • functionality cookie; and
  • targeting or advertising cookie.
  • Strictly Necessary Cookies
    • Why do we use strictly necessary cookies?

      These cookies are essential to our website in order to enable you to move around it and to use its features, such as remembering information you have entered on forms when you move to other pages within a browser session. Without strictly necessary cookies, certain services which you may have asked for will not be possible and our website will not perform as smoothly as we think you would expect.

    • How do I consent to use of strictly necessary cookies?

      Accepting strictly necessary cookies is a condition of using our website. If you reject these cookies then we cannot predict how our website will perform when you visit it nor guarantee your security.

    • What strictly necessary cookies do we use on our website?

      XSRF-TOKEN This cookie is used to combat CSRF (cross-site request forgery) and ensure actions are coming from a legitimate source.
      laravel_session This is the session cookie used to keep track of your state, e.g. whether you are logged in.

      Please note that third parties may also store strictly necessary cookies on our website. Please see section 3 for more information.

  • Performance cookies
    • Why do we use performance cookies?

      Performance cookies collect information about your use of our website and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, performance cookies will show us which are the most frequently visited pages on our website, help us record any difficulties you have with our website and show us whether our advertising is effective or not (but note that performance cookies do not collect information to display targeted advertising on other websites).

      Performance cookies do not collect information that identifies you personally and all information that is collected by these cookies is aggregated and anonymous.

      In some cases, we may use third parties to manage our performance cookies but we do not allow any third party to use these cookies other than for the types of purpose listed in this paragraph. For example, they do not remember information about you for the purposes of targeting adverts at you on other websites.

    • How do I consent to use of performance cookies?

      Accepting performance cookies is a condition of using our website. If you reject these cookies then we cannot predict how our website will perform when you visit it nor guarantee your security.

  • Functionality cookies
    • Why do we use functionality cookies?

      Functionality cookies allow us to remember the choices you make on our website and to provide enhanced and more personal features. We also use functionality cookies to remember changes you have made to our website, such as customising a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion and for other services you request such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. All of these features help us to improve your visit to our website.

      Our functionality cookies will not track your activity on other websites.

      In some cases, we may use third parties to manage our functionality cookies but we do not allow any third party to use these cookies other than for the types of purposes listed in this paragraph. For example, they do not remember information about you for the purposes of targeting adverts at you on other websites.

    • How do I consent to use of functionality cookies?

      You can control our use of functionality cookies. We explain how you can manage the different cookies we use on our website at section 4. If you prevent the use of functionality cookies then this may mean that we cannot offer some services on our website and may interrupt your enjoyment of it (for example, we may not be able to record your request not to offer you a particular type of service). This may also mean we are limited in the scope of support we can offer you.

    • What functionality cookies do we use on our website?

      Please note that third parties may also store strictly necessary cookies on our website. Please see section 3 for more information.

  • Targeting or advertising cookies
    • Why do we use targeting or advertising cookies?

      We use targeting cookies or advertising cookies to deliver adverts which we believe are more relevant to you and your interests, for example if you participate in a particular fitness class on our website, we may show you an advert for the sale of sports equipment we think that you might like. We may also use targeting or advertising cookies to limit the number of times you see the same advert on our website and to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. These cookies remember what you have looked at on our website and may share this information with other organisations such as advertisers.

      Third parties may also place targeting or advertising cookies on our website. Please read section 3 for more details.

    • How do I consent to use of targeting or advertising cookies?

      You can control our use of targeting or advertising cookies and we have explained how you can manage the different cookies we use on our website at section 4. If you prevent the use of targeting or advertising cookies then this may mean that we cannot offer some services on our website.

      Targeting or advertising cookies may be controlled by third parties and you can control use of these cookies via a third party's own tools. We have explained how you can do this in section 4.

    • What targeting or advertising cookies do we use on our website?

      Cookie name Puropse
      N/A N/A

Managing Cookies

  • You can control which cookies you get and which you keep on your device. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings so that it will refuse our cookies, our system will issue cookies when you visit our website.
  • Many web browsers can be set up to ask for your prior consent before an individual cookie is set on your device. This will give you control over your cookies but naturally may interfere with your browsing experience ie if you have to accept each cookie on our website (and on other websites you visit).
  • You may refuse to accept our cookies on your computer or mobile device at any time by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse cookies. We have included links below to direct you to the pages of the main web browsers sites which provide details about changing your browser settings. For information on how to control cookies on web browsers which are not included below or on other devices which you use to view our website (such as on mobile phones and other mobile devices) please refer to your user manual.
  • Please note that by deleting cookies or disabling future cookies you may be unable to access certain areas or features of our website and it will mean that settings such as your stored username and password may have to be reset. If you adjust your cookie settings this will also affect the other websites you visit.
  • All of the major browsers offer tips and guidance for managing the cookies available on your browser. There are also lots of different third party browser plug ins and extensions available which you can download to make it easier to see and control your cookies.

  • Some of these sites enable you to opt out of online behavioural advertising and other tracking cookies (ie in addition to the control settings on your browser as set out in section 4).

Flash Cookies

  • We may in certain situations use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content such as video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, local shared objects (commonly known as Flash cookies) are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your terminal but they are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at browser level, in the same way you would manage cookies.
  • You can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s web site directly. The Adobe website provides comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies - see www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/security for further information.
  • Please be aware that if you disable or reject Flash cookies for our websites, you may not be able to access certain features of our websites, such as playing video content, participating in classes or using other services that require you to sign in.

Email Cookies

We may set cookies within emails we send to you (if you have consented to receiving emails from us). These cookies are used to track how often our emails are opened and clicked on by our customers. You can manage email cookies in the same way as website cookies, as explained in section 4.
