First Party and Third Party Cookies

Where a cookie is placed on behalf of another website, this is a third party cookie. We use both first and third party cookies, which may be placed when you visit any part of our domain. First party cookies are only accessible by an domain, although the information they contain may be transmitted to a third party, as defined below.
