What are cookies?
A cookie is a text file containing a unique identifier which is downloaded to your device when you access a website or mobile app. The text file is then sent back to our server each time your browser requests a page from the server. This enables us to operate the Website or mobile app more effectively so that it reflects your personal preferences, based on your previous browsing on the Website or mobile app as well as keywords we may be able to gather from URLs of other webpages or apps from which you accessed the Website or mobile app. Cookies can also allow us to do various other things, as explained below.
Cookies can be used for the duration of your visit or they can be set to last longer so we can measure how you interact with us over time.
When you visit the Website or mobile app and consent to cookies, the following types of cookies may be downloaded to your device:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These are cookies that are required for the administration and operation of the Website or mobile app. Some cookies that we use are necessary for the Website or mobile app to function properly and to enable you to move around the Website or mobile app and use its features.
Functional Cookies (Useful Features)
Analytical and Performance Cookies (Visit Tracking)
We may use analytics service providers for website traffic analysis and reporting. Analytics service providers generate statistical and other information about the use of the Website or mobile app by using cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how often visitors return to the Website or mobile app, how long they stay and how visitors move around the Website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the Website or mobile app works, for example, it helps users to find what they are looking for easily. The information generated relating to the Website or mobile app may be used to create reports about the use of the site and the analytics service provider will store this information.
Third party and Advertising Cookies
Do we use any third-party cookies?
Because the Virgin Group and Richard Branson have a strong presence on various social networks, we try to make it as easy as possible to share content and to see what content is popular on those networks. We add buttons to allow people to easily share to those networks. When we include these social 'plugins', it gives those sites the flexibility to use their own cookies. They can't read any cookies we set from the Website, and we can't read any cookies they set, but it lets them do the same kind of traffic measuring that we do on the rest of the Website (and it also lets them know whether you're logged into their site).
How do I turn cookies off?
