What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (first party cookies) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (third party cookies).

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your 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).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn't use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won't recognise you and it won't be able to keep you logged in.

The use of cookies on websites

Due to changes in the law, websites must now get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you. By clicking the 'Continue' button on the information bar that appeared when you first visited the website we are assuming that you consent to the use of cookies during your visit to the NFU Mutual Careers website.

Unless the cookie is strictly necessary, you can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time even if you have previously consented. Although, please remember that if you do not consent to our functionality cookies, parts of our website may not work.

How does NFU Mutual Careers use cookies?

Cookies enable us to identify your device, or you when you have logged in. We use cookies that are strictly necessary to enable you to move around the site or to provide certain basic features. We use cookies to enhance the functionality of the website by storing your preferences, for example. We also use cookies to help us to improve the performance of our website to provide you with a better user experience. We don't sell the information collected by cookies, nor do we disclose the information to third parties, except where required by law.

The tables below explain what cookies we use on our website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary, functionality or performance related cookies. Please note that any information collected by functionality and performance cookies on this website is done so anonymously. We also state whether a cookie is a persistent or session cookie.

Strictly necessary cookies

Some cookies are strictly necessary in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, we will not be able to determine the number of unique users of the site or provide certain features. Your website session will launch with these automatically in place.

Functionality cookies

Functionality cookies record information about choices you've made and allow us to tailor the website to you. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your log in details) and customised preference settings (e.g. text size). These cookies are also used to provide services you have asked for such as sing a map, which is what we use them for on our website.

Performance cookies

We use 'performance' cookies to help us to provide you with a better user experience. Information supplied by cookies helps us to understand how our visitors use the NFU Mutual Careers website so that we can improve how we present our content to you. We generally contract with independent measurement and research companies to perform these services for us and when this is the case, these cookies may be set by a third party company (third party cookies). Third party cookies are identified in the list below, together with information as to how you can opt out of receiving them. These cookies will be introduced should you accept the use of cookies by clicking the continue link in the information bar that was delivered at the start of your website session.

What to do if you don't want cookies to be set

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. If you prefer, it is possible to modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set. But you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.
