What Is In A Cookie?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer, tablet or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences, or what’s in your shopping basket.
What If You Don't What Cookies Set?
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer, tablet or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies (See ‘How you can control cookies’ below), or even to delete cookies that have already been set, but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website if you do.
We don’t sell the information collected by cookies, nor do we disclose the information to third parties, except where required by law (for example to the police with a valid court order).
If you wish to control what cookies are set on your device through our website then you can find out how to do this below.
