1. What Is A Cookie?

1.1. Cookies are small text files they are stored by your browser onto your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (eg by remembering your user preferences).

1.2. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you do not want information collected this way, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookies feature (please read section 4 below for more details about how to do this).

It will be activated every time you visit a website which created that particular persistent cookie.
