A ‘cookie’ is a small text file that websites place on your computer or smartphone. When you visit Crest Nicholson websites (and other sites), the browser on your computer or smartphone automatically downloads the webpage you were seeking and may also download our cookie (depending on how your browser is configured).
Cookies remember your computer or smartphone browser when you next visit, what pages you’ve viewed and any account preferences. We analyse this information to help us understand how people use our site and how we can improve it.
We use what are called ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’. Session cookies will remember you for the length of time you have a browser open and are looking at a site, but are deleted when you close the browser. Persistent cookies are not deleted when the browser is closed but will continue to remember you for a set amount of time.
Cookies can be used for a variety of different reasons; to remember personal preferences on a website, to remember your name during a visit to a site, to store login status or to show you relevant information on your next visit. They are also used by companies to track your use of their website and see where you've clicked and how long you've been on a page, in order to improve the site performance and layout for future users.

Third Party Cookies
‘Third party cookies’ are set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting such as Crest Nicholson. They allow the third-party company to set a cookie that helps them learn what you might have been looking at on a specific site and track you to other websites and show you information on other sites, such as advertising. For example, a site may have a Facebook ‘like’ button on it. The ‘like’ button will set a cookie from Facebook that allows Facebook to deliver ads to people based on their visit to the current site, such as Crest Nicholson.
If you are concerned about third party cookies you can turn them off in your browser.
This cookie is used by Facebook to monitor when developments are 'liked'. Read Facebook's data policy for more information.
