Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing.
We use the term cookies in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way. Cookies serve many functions, for example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Certain cookies may record personal information for example, if you click ‘Remember me’ when logging in, a cookie will store your username.
Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you personally, and will instead allow us to collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our website.
