A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded in the background by your browser. It usually contains only a unique reference code, which means the website can 'remember' you as you move between pages. No personal information is stored in the cookie.
Examples of why cookies are used include remembering that you are logged into a site even when you change pages, so that you don't have to log in again, and so on.
We only use simple cookies on this website. First party cookies are used for analytics and basic site functionality. All cookies used by this website are used in accordance with the EU GDPR.
If you prefer your web browser to not download cookies, then there are ways to set that up. This will mean, however, that the functionality of most websites, including this one, will be reduced.
