What are cookies?
The cookies we use fall into three categories.
|Essential||These cookies are necessary to help you access and move around the website and use all its features. Without these cookies, the website would not work properly and you would not be able to use certain important features. For example, we use a cookie to keep you logged in during your visit, so the site does not require you to log in repeatedly to access different pages.

We use these cookies to test different designs and features for our sites and we also use them to help us monitor how visitors reach the website.
|Advertising||Advertising cookies help ensure that the advertisements you see are as relevant to you as possible. For example, some advertising cookies help select ads that are based on your interests. Others help prevent the same ad from continuously reappearing for you.
We also work with third-party advertisers to give you access to your night out content that might be of interest, and may set cookies on our Services to provide you with advertising that matches your interests and preferences. These “third-party cookies” collect information about your browsing behaviour and interaction with ads or the Services more generally. This information also helps us limit the number of times you may see the same ads and improve your online experience.
