Cookies and How We Use Them
What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device (phone, laptop or tablet) when you visit a website. Data is then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests and they can measure how many people visit the website, when and how. They cannot identify you personally.
You can find more information about cookies and learn how to manage them yourself at: www.allaboutcookies.org
