About cookies

When we refer to “cookies” we mean any tool used to store or access information about a user’s computer or other device. Cookies are widely used to allow online and mobile sites to function efficiently. A cookie is often a small text file that transfers onto your computer, tablet or mobile device when you visit a site. The cookie may be sent back to that site when you visit again, and may then be used by the server to identify and track your use of Swoop. Cookies last for various durations. A “session cookie” is a short-lived cookie which, depending on your browser settings, is usually deleted when you close your browser. A “persistent” cookie is a long-term cookie that will be stored by your browser until its set expiry date (unless you delete it before the expiry date).

Cookies have four different functions and can be categorised as follows:
