A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value. Certain cookies will be used on the Site regardless of whether you are logged in to your account or not.

Like most websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes, primarily to improve your online experience, for analytics and for marketing, and marketplace functionality. We may specifically we use Cookies on the Website for the following purposes:

Analytical Purposes:

Session Cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Website.

Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to our Website, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data). We may also employ cookies so that we remember your computer when it is used to return to the Website to help customise your RSC web experience.

We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances. You can open your cookie preferences to review or change which cookies categories you've conscented to store. Additionally, you can use the options in your web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. You can easily delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser.

Furthermore, you can prevent Google's collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB# . You may disable the use of Google Analytics by using the link disable Google Analytics. This link creates an opt-out cookie which prevents the further processing of your data.
