About our cookies policy

Our cookies policy explains how cookies and other tracking devices are used on our website at For the purpose of this policy, references to “cookies” refers to cookies and other types of technologies which are used to help us recognise you as a user of our website.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) which is placed on your computer or other device when you visit our website. The cookies are then used to gather information about your use of a site or in some cases, to allow you to be recognised as an existing user when returning to our website.

How do we use cookies?

Cookies are used to help our website work more efficiently and to provide information to us. They help our website to work in the way that you would expect so that we can provide you with a good experience when you use it. They also help us to improve our site and make our promotional activity more efficient by enabling Radio Marsden to identify and track browsing on our websites.

What types of cookies do we use?

In general terms, our cookies can be categorised into the following categories:

Strictly necessary

These cookies are necessary for the operation of the website. They are usually set only in response to actions you have taken, such as: setting your privacy preferences, signing in to secure website areas or filling out forms. You can set your browser to block these cookies in which case some parts of our website may not work.

Analytical / performance

These cookies enable us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website. They help us to find out which pages are most popular and how visitors move around the site so we can improve the way it works, for example, by ensuring that visitors easily find what they are looking for. All information collected by these cookies is summarised and anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we do not know when you visited our website and therefore cannot monitor its performance.


These are ‘persistent’, more long-term cookies that remain on your computer after you’ve closed your browser. These allow a returning user and their preferences to be recognised which means that the website can then present personalised content each time they return. They may be placed by us or by third parties whose services we have integrated to our website. If you do not allow these cookies, some or all of these services may not work properly.


These are cookies which allow us to make advertising more engaging for our site visitors including through remarketing. Remarketing is a form of online advertising that enables sites to show targeted ads to users who have previously visited that site in order to encourage them to revisit the site. Our use of these cookies allows us to collect data from our site visitors such that third-party vendors, for example, Google, LinkedIn and Twitter

can enable our previous site visitors to view personalised adverts based on their visits to, and use of, our website. If you do not allow these cookies, third-party websites and publishers will not display advertising content that based upon your visits to the Radio Marsden website.

Note that where we provide links to other websites, such as the links we provide to our social media pages, those third-party websites may also use cookies and you should familiarise yourself with the cookies information that they provide on their own websites. We are not responsible for any cookies used on third party websites to which we may provide links.

How long do cookies last for?

Our website uses both session and permanent cookies (see the below table for more detail).

Session cookies

These are used for the current session only, for example to allow information you have provided on our site to be carried through to other pages so that you don’t need to enter the same information repeatedly, i.e. when you complete our application form. A session cookie will expire when your session finishes which means it will be automatically deleted when you leave the site.

Persistent cookies

These are longer lasting cookies which are stored on your computer and help us to recognise whether you have been on the site before. These cookies may for example recognise when you return to the website, meaning that content and advertisements can be tailored to your preferences. This may be to make sure you are not asked to complete research surveys too frequently after you have already done so, or after you have chosen not to complete one.
