See what our cookies do
You might have heard stuff about website cookies recently and want to know more. Now you can see exactly what cookies we use on virginmedia.com and what they do, with our new guide.
We use four different types of cookies:
- Essential cookies
- Cookies for website info
- Cookies that save your settings
- Cookies for adverts
Our website needs the essential cookies to make it work properly. They help you move around the website and do things you’ve specifically come to the website for, like putting things in your basket or eBilling.
We’re constantly improving our website based on what our visitors do and the pages you look at. Our cookies for website info record anonymous information about visits and clicks on each web page. We use this to identify things that are going well, and things that we can improve.
If you’ve changed a font or personalised something, cookies that save your settings remember that, so you don’t have to do it all again each time you come back. Helpful, eh?
If you’d rather see adverts online that are relevant to the things you’re into, cookies for adverts tell other websites if you’d be interested in their stuff.
So, these helpful little fellas keep the web running smoothly and make it work for each of us. If you want more detail, you can read more about our cookies
