What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file that is saved by your browser when you visit a website. It enables certain information about your visit to be stored by the site.

Some of these cookies are essential in order for a website to run as you would expect it to while others allow us to provide you with a better service (for example, understanding what content is most popular, to provide you more of the same).

Our Cookie Policy

We understand you need to reach the most relevant information quickly and easily. So, our main aim of using cookies is to provide you with the most optimised 'user experience' possible. (For details on what personal information we collect using cookies and how we use it, read our privacy policy http://www.wilmington.co.uk/privacy-policy .)

We may use cookies to help you navigate the website efficiently and perform certain functions. For example, cookies allow us to remember your log in details to save you from having to type your username and password every time you visit us, or move from page to page.

Our website analytics tool also uses cookies in order to analyse how, when and where visitors use our websites, but this information is not tied to personally identifiable information. We only use this data to improve your experience. For example, we are able to find out what the most popular content is each week, and update our homepage to reflect that current interest.

For members, subscribers and registered users of our website, if your cookies aren't enabled on your computer, it will mean that your experience when logged in to our website will be limited. You will only be able to browse and you will not be able to use our shop to book on an event or order publications.
