What Are Cookies?
For a long time we thought cookies were just a tasty snack sent from the heavens to enrich the lives of humans. But it turns out they’re also something used by most websites to make for better browsing online. Cookies are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer to improve your experience (in much the same way a gooey chocolate chip can really improve your day). This page describes what information they gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. If we’ve whet your appetite for cookie knowledge, you can find out more on this Wikipedia article on HTTP Cookies.
If you decide cookies aren’t for for you, you can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings in your browser (see your browser help for how to do this). Be aware that disabling cookies is likely to affect the functionality of this website and others. If you don’t want to disable cookies but would like to manage how they’re used, our cookie settings page provides additional ways to control what cookies you receive on our site.
Hopefully that has clarified things for you and helped you to see cookies in a whole new light. They’re clever little things. If there is something that you aren’t sure whether or not you need, it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled – just in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site.
