WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
One type of cookie will save a file permanently on your computer. It can thereafter be used to customise this website based on your choices and interests. Another common type of cookie is the “session cookie”. When you visit a website, session cookies are sent between your computer and the server to collect information. Session cookies are not saved after you close your internet browser. You can find more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.
