Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ’session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (‘third party cookies’). We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers. The User may also regularly destroy the cookies stored on his disk drive or establish a “black list” of websites whose cookies he does not wish to have stored on his disk drive.
