What are Cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that websites can store in your browser when you visit them. These cookies can be used to enhance your experience of a website, creating greater personalization of the content and services you see.

However, some cookies can also be used to track your browsing across many different sites, and create a profile of your interests. This profile can be used to target you with online advertising.

Some people don’t like this kind of activity, and this is one of the reasons the EU Cookie Law was created.

If you want to know more about how cookies work, and what they are used for, then go to Cookiepedia – the site that is all about cookies and nothing else.

See How to Manage Cookies for instructions on how to change your browser settings.
