What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your browser as you surf the web.
Cookies contain a string of unique code that acts as a label. When a website sees the string of text it set in a cookie, it knows the browser is one it has seen before. They do not contain software programs, cannot install anything on a computer, or contain any information that would identify a person.
If you use a different computer, open a new web browser or delete your cookies, the website will treat you as if you have arrived for the first time (and new cookies will be set).
You can find out more about cookies by visiting http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
