What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your
device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each
subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.

You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and

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

Cookies are referred to as session or persistent, depending on how long they are stored on your
computer or device:

Session cookies only last for the length of your online session. They disappear from your
computer or device when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies stay on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last
for a set period of time specified in the cookie. These cookies are activated each time you visit
the site that generated the cookie.

following categories of cookies may be set on your device (please note Kingfisher does not

Performance cookies

Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which
pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies
don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is
aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

The Site currently uses two types of performance cookies. These are Google Analytics and Gaia
Insight. View a full list of our cookies.

cookie in order to evaluate our use of the Site and compiles reports on user activity. Google

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name,

cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to
remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can
customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a
video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and
they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Kingfisher or its third party partners set a range of functional cookies which perform a variety of
tasks from remembering a user’s preferences and settings to restricting the number of times a
user can vote on an article. View a full list of our cookies.
