Our use of cookies

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (first party cookies) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (third party cookies).

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to remember you, either for the duration of your visit (using a session cookie) or for repeat visits (using a persistent cookie).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn't use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won't recognise you and it won't be able to keep you logged in.

The use of cookies on websites

Due to changes in the law, websites must now get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you. By clicking the 'Continue' button on the information bar that appeared when you first visited the website we are assuming that you consent to the use of cookies during your visit to the NFU Mutual Careers website.

Unless the cookie is strictly necessary, you can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time even if you have previously consented. Although, please remember that if you do not consent to our functionality cookies, parts of our website may not work.

 
 
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. If you prefer, it is possible to modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set. But you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.

Removing cookies

Some of the cookies we use are essential for parts of the site to operate and they are in place at the start of your website session. We also use a Google Analytics script which uses cookies. You may delete and block all cookies from this site, but parts of the site will not work. But should you wish to delete or block cookies the following information may help.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
