What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that websites save onto your computer, and don’t contain any of your personal information, so cannot be used to find out who you are.
The purpose of cookies is to improve the way a website works for you.
Examples of how this works:
- Cookies remember settings, so you don’t have to re-enter your settings each time you visit
- They remember information you’ve given (such as your postcode) so you don’t need to keep entering it
- They also measure how you interact with the website, so we can make sure you are getting the best out of it, and that the website meets your needs
