Managing cookies on

Like many other websites, we use Cookies on our website. When you first visit our website, we do not set Cookies on your computer or device (other than essential Cookies) unless you accept/enable all Cookies or select your own Cookie preferences. Periodically, you will be invited to update your Cookie preferences.

You can manage your Cookie preferences at any time here by adjusting the toggles to ON or OFF then clicking "Save and Close". However, please be aware that if you choose not to enable Cookies it may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website and some parts of the website may fail to work.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are placed on your computer or device when you visit our website (essential Cookies only) or when you accept/enable Cookies according to your preferences (in relation to all other Cookies that we use).

What are cookies used for?

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages on our website efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They also provide us with information which helps us understand how our website is being used by you and offer you a more engaged and personalised web experience, for example, by offering you adverts on your social media channels that are more relevant to you and your interests.

Cookies can be "first party", i.e. set by us, or "third-party", i.e. placed on your device by another company, for example Google Analytics. Third-party Cookies may be placed on your device, if you accept/enable them, by someone providing a service to us (for example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our website is being used) or by the organisations listed in the tables below, so that they can advertise products and services to you on our website and elsewhere on the Internet.

What cookies do we use?

We group the Cookies we use on our website into the following four types:

  • Essential cookies. These are Cookies that are essential for the operation of our website. They include, for example, Cookies that enable you to use our page navigation and to enable site security, network management and accessibility.
  • Performance cookies. These are Cookies that help us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. In addition to first party Cookies that we use, we also use third-party Cookies to help with performance. For example, the Google Analytics Cookie gives us information that allows us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our website and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it.
  • Functionality cookies. These are Cookies that are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to remember whether you have pledged participation in WMFW. On return visits to our website, if you have pledged on a previous visit, these Cookies will recognise this.

You can find a full list of all different first party and third-party Cookies that we use and why in the table below.
