What is a cookie?
In short, a cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device to help ensure that you get the best possible experience when you visit a website.
Cookies allow us to improve the website’s content, functionality and speed, while their tracking ability also helps us to understand your likes and dislikes, which means we can respond quickly and adapt the site accordingly.
In fact without cookie placement, a website cannot remember your preferences or registration details for your next visit. For example, by allowing us to place cookies in your web browser, you don’t have to remember your username each time you sign in – a cookie helps us to remember that information for you.
The important thing to remember about all of this is that whilst some cookies are used to track your use of our website, they cannot be used to identify you personally or tell us who you are.
