What are cookies?
A cookie is a file that contains an identifier that is sent by a web server to a web browser and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables a web server to identify and track web browsers.
There are two main types of cookie: persistent cookies, which are stored by a web browser and will remain valid until their set expiry date (unless deleted by the user prior to this), and session cookies, which are deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
None of the cookies we use on our website contain any information that personally identifies users, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
