us to track website usage and measure how effective our marketing activity is.
A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed on a user’s
computer hard drive by a website. There are several types of cookie and the
most common are often referred to as ‘session’ cookies. These are used to keep
track of information needed by a user as they travel from page to page within a
website. These cookies have a short lifetime and expire within a few minutes of
the user leaving the website.
Other types of cookies can be used to track internet
activity after the user has left a website. These are usually sponsored by
organisations external to the website being visited and are generally known as
‘third-party’ cookies. These usually have a long lifetime with several months
being quite common. They are ‘harvested’ and ‘refreshed’ whenever the user
visits a page where the same or a similar cookie is being used.

possible. They do this by allowing the website to remember your previous
settings, like favourite journeys and any preferences you may have, like your
username or your home station.

us to understand general customer behaviour; such as which bits of our website
customer’s use, where they exit and, if anything goes wrong, where it happens;
helping us to make our site better. We also track how customers found our website,
for example which search engine was used or which online adverts were clicked
on before visiting our website, helping us understand our marketing
effectiveness. Data is anonymised and aggregated so we can monitor trends and
count visitors rather than tracking individual customers. They have no impact
