General information about cookies
A cookie is a data file that websites store on the user's computer so that they can recognise the computer during the user’s next visit to the website. Cookies are sent back and forth between the browser and a web server and include, among other things, information about how the website is used.
A cookie is a passive file and cannot spread computer viruses or other malicious programs. It helps to analyse how a website is used so that the webmaster can improve the user experience. In several cases, cookies may be necessary to provide a particular service.
Cookies are usually deleted automatically from the browser when it is closed (so-called session cookies). Cookies can also be set with an expiration date so that data exists in a shorter or longer period (persistent cookies). Persistent cookies are typically stored on your hard disk.
Cookies help speed up the use of our website, allowing you to navigate from page to page without having to re-type the same information again and again.
The cookies we use will also recognise repeat visitors to the site and will attempt to record specific browsing information, trends and patterns. This information helps Routes North to identify the behaviour and needs of our users allowing us to tailor any offers and information which may be of use to you.
