What are cookies?

Nearly all websites store a piece of information, called a cookie, on your computer’s hard drive. This cookie records how you move around that website. This allows the site to tailor your view, based on what you did in your last visit. Cookies can also be used to analyse traffic and for advertising and marketing. 

Cookies are either: 

  • Session cookies: stored on your computer during your web session and deleted when you close your browser. They save you having to log in to each page again, but they do not collect any personal data from your computer 
  • Persistent cookies: stored as a file on your computer, ready for when you next visit that website again. (for example Google Analytics cookies help the site owner count how many unique visitors they’re getting in a month.)
