Like many websites, the NLA website at www.landlords.org.uk (the “Website”) makes use of cookies. A cookie is a text-only string of information that is stored on your computer for a time via your web browser so that the Website can remember who you are. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you personally, although they may be used to identify your IP address (numerical label assigned to each device). A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the ‘lifetime’ of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

The NLA uses three types of cookies on its Website:

  1. Session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the Website; for example if you have something in a shopping cart it will stay in the cart until you leave the site

  3. Third-party cookies, are cookies set with domains different from landlords.org.uk. These are used to connect services. For example, Google remembers you visiting NLA so it appears when you search NLA.

Third party websites to which you may be redirected by whatever means from the NLA Website may also use cookies and details of these should be listed on their sites.
