What are cookies and how does Migreat use them?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which your computer or mobile device downloads when you visit a website. When you return to websites — or visit other websites that use the same cookies — they recognise these cookies and therefore your browsing device.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like helping us understand how this website is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
You can learn about the cookies we use and how to manage them below.

These cookies do not gather information about you that is used for marketing or remember where you have been on the internet.As this category of cookie is essential for the website to work it cannot be disabled.
- Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how you use a website, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get error messages from certain pages. These cookies do not gather information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works. These cookies are not used to target you with online marketing.Without these cookies we cannot learn how our website is performing and make relevant improvements that could better your browsing experience.
- Functionality cookies. These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and tailor the website to provide enhanced features and content for you. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you’ve asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.

- Targeting Cookies. These cookies are used to tailor marketing to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Although these cookies can track your visits to other websites, they usually do not know who you are.Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests. Through the use of these cookies, Migreat is able to provide content to you without charging for access.
