What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored on your computer or mobile device as you browse the web. They allow websites to remember things about you when you move through a website and if you return at a later date. A cookie is set by a particular website, and only that website will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie – which will be sent by your computer on your return.
For example, if you log into a website, a cookie might store the information that you have logged in so it doesn’t ask you on every page to login again. A cookie might store preferences you have set on a website or tell the website you are someone who has visited the site before. In addition, a cookie might be set to see how visitors use the site so the site’s administrators can notice changes in user behavior and change content appropriately.
If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by websites, you can do this through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how.
