1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a text file containing small amounts of information which is downloaded to your device (including computers, tablets and phones) when you visit a website. On each subsequent visit, cookies are then sent back to the originating website (or to another website which recognises that cookie) providing information relating to your previous visits. A cookie may be a “persistent” cookie or a “session” cookie. Persistent cookies remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time you visit the website that created the cookie. Session cookies allow website operators to link your actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted when you close the browser.
