COOKIE POLICY

Coca-Cola European Partners Great Britain Limited (we/us) is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. We aim to be as open and transparent as possible around the information we collect when you visit our websites including through the use of cookies. This policy explains what cookies are and how we use them. It also explains the different types of cookies we use, and how you can change or delete them.

We hope that this policy helps you understand, and feel more confident about, our use of cookies. If you have any further queries, please contact us:

For information on how your information is collected and used by us generally, please see our Privacy Policy.

1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?

1.1 Cookies are small text files. They are stored by your browser onto your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (e.g. by remembering your user preferences).

1.2 Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you do not want information collected this way, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookies feature (please read section 3 below for more details about how to do this).

1.3 The two types of cookies we use are known as session cookies and persistent cookies. These may be cookies which we use and/or a third party uses.

1.3.1 Session cookie

A session cookie is used each time you visit our website to give you a session ID. We use this type of cookie to link your actions on our website and each session cookie will only last for a browser session, at the end of which it will expire. Each browser session will start when you open your browser window and finish when you close your browser window. After your visit to our website all session cookies are deleted. Each time you visit our website you will have a different session ID.

1.3.2 Persistent cookie

A persistent cookie allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or across different sites) to be remembered. It has a longer lifetime than a session cookie and lasts for the period of time specified in the cookie (this will vary from cookie to cookie). This type of cookie will not be deleted when you close your browser window and will be stored on your computer or mobile device. It will be activated every time you visit a website which created that particular persistent cookie.

2 FUNCTIONALITY COOKIES

2.1 Why do we use functionality cookies?

Functionality cookies allow us to remember the choices you make on our website and to provide enhanced and more personal features. We also use functionality cookies to remember changes you have made to our website, such as customising a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion and for other services you request such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. All of these features help us to improve your visit to our website.
Our functionality cookies will not track your activity on other websites.

2.2 How do I consent to use of functionality cookies?

You can control our use of functionality cookies. We explain how you can manage the different cookies we use on our website at section 3. If you prevent the use of functionality cookies then this may mean that we cannot offer some services on our website and may interrupt your enjoyment of it (for example, we may not be able to record your request not to offer you a particular type of service). This may also mean we are limited in the scope of support we can offer you.
