What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded to your computer when you access websites. They contain small pieces of information such as: site name, unique user ID, life-span (time) of the cookie's abilities and effects, and a random number. Generally cookies are not used to reveal your identity or any personal identifying information.

When you visit a website that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie will be downloaded onto your device. On subsequent visits to the website, the website will check if a cookie exists and if so can tailor its actions/content to the information stored. It could also be used to record how long you spend on each page on a site, what links you click, or your preferences for page layouts and colour schemes.
