What are cookies?

Cookie’s are small text files, usually made up of letters / numbers, they are downloaded to your computer when you access a website. Typically they normally contain the following information; site name & unique ID, duration of cookie’s abilities & effects, and also a random number. As a rule, cookies cannot be used to reveal your identity or personally identifying information.

If you visit a website that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie will be downloaded to your computer – next time you visit that website, the computer checks if it has a cookie that may be relevant and then sends the info contained in that cookie back to the site. The website then makes a note that you have been there before, and in some cases, will tailor what pops up on the screen to take account of that fact. Also, they might record how long you spend on each page on a site, what URL’s you click and even preferences for page layouts & colour schemes.

Generally the roles of cookies are beneficial – they make your interaction with frequently-visited sites much smoother with no extra effort on your behalf – without cookies the web would be much harder. Without cookies, some websites will become less interactive with the cookie option turned off.
