What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text file stored on your computer which is unique to your web browser. It enables a website to remember things like user preferences and shopping basket contents. Websites often use services like google analytics (as outlined above) which also make use of cookies.

What to do if you donít want cookies to be set

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.
