How we use Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of information that is stored on your computer’s hard drive by your web browser and cannot do your computer any harm. When you revisit the associated website the server will recognise the cookie, which gives it information about your last visit(s). In other words, a cookie allows a website to remember choices and submitted information so that you will not need to reset certain user-defined features or re-enter details. Cookies are either permanent (usually with a long term expiry date) or are only used in the current session and cease to exist when the browser is shut down (so called ‘session cookies’).
