2 What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file of data, often incorporating a unique identifier which is sent to a user's computer or mobile phone browser from a website. This data file stores the information provided to us and in doing so enables us to 'remember' an individual user on any repeat visit. Cookies are used by us to help our users navigate our website efficiently and perform certain functions.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but the browser can be set to prevent this. If a browser's preferences permit it, each website or third party service provider is able to send a cookie to the browser. However, to protect the user's privacy, the browser only allows these websites or third party service providers to access cookies already sent to the user, not the cookies sent by other sites or other third party service providers.
Cookies record information about online preferences, which are then used to tailor a website to the individual. Devices can be set up to accept all cookies, to notify the user when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time.
Each browser is different, so please refer to the 'Help' menu of the browser used to find out how to change cookie preferences.
