Cookies And What They Do
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Some cookies are only placed on your device for the time you are browsing the website. Others may be stored on your device and sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
Cookies are commonly used by websites to remember some aspect of your current or previous visit. This could include things like the choices you’ve made or preferences you’ve chosen during your visit. Websites commonly do this in order to improve or tailor your current and future visits to that site or other related sites.
They are stored in your browser’s cache and allow a website or a third party to recognise your browser. Most browsers support cookies but you can configure your computer or mobile device browser's settings locally to reflect your preference to accept or reject cookies, including how to handle third-party cookies (see Accepting, deleting, and how to turn off cookies section below).
