What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store user preferences, for example your preferred language.

Cookies can be used by web servers for many reasons, but mainly it’s to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and also to identify users returning to a website. This in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you chose to share with us.
