What Are Cookies
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit certain web pages. They allow websites to function or provide useful information to the site owner.
Cookies track your online activity to help deliver a more personalized content and web experience. Many cookies are automatically created when you visit a website and collect basic technical information, such as your IP address, browser type, operating system and the website you visited before this one.
Other cookies known as “third party cookies” come from an external domain separate to ours, for example from advertising networks like Google and Facebook that allow targeted advertising on our website based on your browsing patterns across different websites.
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
