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.


Cookies enable us to remember your device, or you when you have logged in. When you visit our website we send you cookies which may be used in the following ways:

  • To remember that you have logged in and to personalise the pages that you view based on this information.
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our website. We cannot identify you personally in this way.

Two types of cookies may be used on this website: session cookies, which are temporary cookies that are retained by your browser until you close it, and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookie store of your browser between successive visits to the site.

We don’t sell the information collected by cookies, nor do we share the information with third parties, except where required by law as per our Privacy Policy.

In particular, we use the following categories of cookies and similar technologies:

Strictly Necessary
Strictly necessary cookies allow core website functionality such as user login and account management. The website cannot be used properly without strictly necessary cookies.
Performance cookies are used to see how visitors use the website, eg. analytics cookies. Those cookies cannot be used to directly identify a certain visitor.
Targeting cookies are used to identify visitors between different websites, eg. content partners, banner networks. Those cookies may be used by companies to build a profile of visitor interests or show relevant ads on other websites.
Functionality cookies are used to remember visitor information on the website, eg. language, timezone, enhanced content.
Unclassified cookies are cookies that do not belong to any other category or are in the process of categorization.

We use Google Signals, a feature of Google Analytics, to enable cross-device remarketing and advertising reporting. This feature allows Google to collect data about users across multiple devices, using techniques such as device graphs and anonymous identifiers.

Google Signals respects the privacy settings of users and does not collect any personally identifiable information. It also provides users with the option to opt-out of cross-device tracking by turning off ad personalization in their Google Account settings.


Our ‘Cookie Settings’ consent banner appears on visiting the OurFuture.Energy website and allows you to manage your preferences.

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can change your web browser’s settings 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.

You can choose whether to accept cookies that are set by OurFuture.Energy through your browser’s cookie settings. More information on what this entails is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Most of our site will work without cookies, but you will lose some of the interactive features and functionality of our site if you choose to disable cookies.

You have the right to opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features and Google Signals by using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on or by adjusting your ad personalization settings in your Google Account.
