INFORMATION ABOUT OUR USE OF LOCAL STORAGE

What is local storage?

Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. This technology is similar to cookies in that only non-sensitive data is stored, but has a greater storage limit. When web storage is used in "local storage" mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (meaning that data are retrievable even after the browser window has been closed and reopened). One technology that facilitates web storage (and local storage) is HTML 5.

What type of properties do we store in local storage?

We use Functionality Properties. These properties enable the features of our Website. They recognise you when you return to our Website and remember the choices you have made, such as the selection of your favourites pages or whether you’ve enabled notifications. This allows us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, sounds notifications, etc). Without these properties, you will still be able to use our Website, but your experience will be more difficult, and you may not get the best out of our services. You will not see content that is relevant to you.

You can find more information about the individual properties we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:

How to manage your cookies and local storage preferences?

You can accept or decline cookies. Most modern browsers allow you to see what cookies you have on your device and allow to manage your preferences by using their cookie settings. You can usually find these cookie settings in the “option” or “preference” menu of your browser. You can always use the “help” functionality in your browser to search for this information. Here is a list of links which will help you to understand how to manage your cookies preferences:

Modern browsers allow you to delete the data in local storage (also referred to as "website data", "browsing data" or "other data" in some browsers) by using the privacy settings associated with that browser. Most browsers also now offer the option to accept, prompt for or block the storage of local data.
