What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent by a website to your web browser, where it becomes stored for later retrieval; usually it is a text file which is placed in the browser directory of your computer’s hard drive.
The cookie cannot be read by any website other than the one that set up the cookie.
Most web browsers will accept cookies by default, but they can be set to reject cookies, either from all websites or from specific sites. You can also manually delete cookies from your web browser. These options are generally set through a “privacy” setting in your browser setup.
You can learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on how to control cookies on a wide variety of browsers.
Cookies will enable our web-sites to recognize the information you have consented to give and use it to present you with custom web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic welcome page, you might see a welcome page with your name on it. Some features on this site will not function if you do not allow cookies.
