What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers, which is ‘saved’ by a website directly to your computer or mobile device. They are used to record specific pieces of information. Cookies often include an anonymised unique identifier. Without revealing your personal information, data is distinguished as coming from a different place than other data. 

When you visit a website, it asks permission to store a cookie in the cookies section of your hard drive. Please be aware that restricting cookies on the Antares website may impact our website’s functionality.

Widely used on the internet, cookies help make websites work:

Cookies enable websites to function more efficiently or provide information about your site usage (to the site owner or third parties). For example:

  • When adding items to a ‘shopping basket’, a cookie allows the website to remember items bought
  • Or, if you log in to a website, a cookie may recognise you later, so you don’t have to enter your password again.

Examples of how we use cookies at Antares 

To improve the way our website works, we

  • Review our site functionality via third-party cookies* set by Google Analytics
  • Improve our online marketing using Cookies built by Facebook and Google AdWords

Different types of cookies:

• Session cookies: stored on a particular website, but only for the visit duration
Persistent cookies: may be stored in your browser’s ‘cookie file’ for extended periods. They may not necessarily disappear straight away. Instead, you may need to clear your browser’s cache manually, depending on the lifetime of the specific cookie
Third-party cookies: associated with a different domain or website than the one visited. We use third-party cookies built by Google to enable website analytics on our site. However, as our site is not on the Google domain, this makes theirs an example of third-party cookies.

Google Analytics

The Google Analytics cookie will recognise and count the number of people who visit our site. It also provides other information, such as:

  • how long do visitors stay
  • where they move to on our site
  • what pages receive the most visits

We cannot directly control Google cookie behaviour because it is a third-party cookie (see above).

Information retrieved will be delivered to a Google Analytics account (another website), not to ours. However, we are specifically required to provide you with the following information regarding Google Analytics:

  4. In turn, Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
  5. Importantly Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google
