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.

What are cookies used for? 

Cookies (and other technologies, like pixels and beacons) do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They also help us understand how our website is being used and can help to ensure that adverts you see online 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 when you visit our website, for example Google Analytics or Advertising cookies. Third-party cookies may be placed on your device 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 our business partners, so that they can advertise products and services to you on our website and elsewhere on the Internet. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access third-party cookies; nor can other organisations access the data in the cookies we use on our website.

What cookies do we use? 

We use four types of cookies, which we describe in this section. You can also find a full list of all different first and third-party cookies that we use in the table below.

  • Essential cookies. These are cookies that are essential for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Performance cookies. These help us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. 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 (inc. social media). These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name (if you have a account) and remember your preferences (for example, if you are based in the United Kingdom, we will remember this and make sure that you view the UK homepage when you visit our site, rather than the Australia homepage). A mix of first-party and third-party cookies are used. For example, we use some social sharing plugins, to allow you to share certain pages of our website on social networks or to log in to
  • Targeting/advertising cookies. These third-party cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. Our advertising partners use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests.

    There are times when we want to reach Jamie’s fans who use social media to market our own products and services to them. We use cookies to help with this. For example, we place a pixel on our web pages that allows Facebook to place cookies on web browsers. When a visitor who uses Facebook returns to Facebook, Facebook can identify them as part of a group of and serve them with marketing messages from us. The data that can be obtained from a visit to the is limited to the URL of the pages that have been visited, together with the limited information a browser might pass on, such as its IP address. If you are a Facebook user you can opt out by following the link below.

    Because the online data collected through cookies and similar technology is shared with our advertising partners, when you are on another website, you may be shown advertising based on your browsing patterns on We may also show you advertising on based on your browsing patterns on other sites that we have obtained from our advertising partners.
