Cookies in emails
The types of cookies we use are:
- Web beacons: they tell us whether you’ve opened the email, when, and how often, the location and whether you clicked a link. We also use web beacons to help us display emails in the best format for your device.
- Link tracking: our emails contain a number of hyperlinks, each of which has a unique tag. When you click on one of these links the mailing company logs the click so that we can understand who has clicked through from an email to our website.
We use this information to view how effective our mailings are.
