What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) from a website and is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Websites can send cookies to your browser if your preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy, a website can only access cookies that it has already sent to you. Many websites do this whenever a user visits, in order to track levels of online traffic.
When you visit this website, the pages you see are downloaded to your device along with a cookie.
