What are Cookies?
Cookies are files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to the device you use when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies do lots of different and useful jobs, such as remembering your preferences, and generally improving your online experience.
There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way but have minor differences.
Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. They facilitate tasks such as allowing a website to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality.
These cookies help our website remember what you chose on the previous page, avoiding the need to re-enter information and improve your experience whilst using the website. They contain no personal information that can be used to identify an individual. Their names typically include SESSIONID.
Persistent cookies last after you have closed your browser and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences. Sometimes persistent cookies are used by websites to provide targeted advertising based on the browsing history of the device.
Tower Leasing uses persistent cookies in a few ways, for example, to allow us to analyse customer visits to our site, for example, the cookie named _ga. These cookies help us to understand how customers arrive at and use our site so we can improve our service.
For full details about our cookies, we’ve put together a list of the cookies we use:
