A “cookie” is a small file that may be stored on your computer or mobile device by a website you visit. Cookies can allow sites to record your activities or preferences, or contain data useful for the proper functioning of the site itself. Cookies can be set by the owner of the website or by third party services authorised by the owner to carry out functions such as web analytics.
There are two main types of cookie: “session” cookies are deleted as soon as you closer your web browser, while “persistent” cookies remain on your device after you go offline and allow sites you visit to “remember” you and your preferences.
