This page is being updated and will outline what cookies are used by OurFuture.Energy.


A cookie is a text-only piece of information that a website transfers to the cookie store of the browser on your device so that the website can remember who you are.

Most websites you visit will use cookies to improve your 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 may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who provide content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).


A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your device by a website, and only that website will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie.

Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will typically contain the name of the site from which the cookie has come, the ‘lifetime’ of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.
