Use of Cookies on OEN

OEN’s websites and online services may use “cookies”. Cookies are used to improve user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

It also helps you to use shopping baskets (such as in our shop), to personalise your experience on our sites, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and give us insights into user behaviour so we can improve our communications and products.

If you want to disable cookies please check with your browser provider to find out how to disable cookies. Because cookies are used throughout our websites, disabling them may prevent you from using certain parts of the sites.

The cookies used on our websites have been categorised based on the guidelines found in the ICC UK Cookie guide. We use the following categories on our websites and other online services:

Category 1 — Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential to enable you to browse around our websites and use their features. Without these cookies, services like shopping baskets and accounts cannot function properly.

Category 2 — Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our websites. For example which pages you go to most or what are the top searches on the blog.

This data may be used to help optimise our websites and make them easier for you to navigate.

These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

Category 3 — Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our websites to remember choices you make while browsing.

For instance, we may store your language or the region you are in to properly serve you the right currency in our shop. We may also remember preferences such as text size, fonts and other customisable site elements.

The information these cookies collect will not personally identify you, and they cannot track your browsing activity on non-OEN websites.
