What is a Cookie? 

A cookie is a simple text file downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or page, so the website can recognise your device the next time you visit. Cookies are essentially used for easy navigation, making your experience faster, easier, and more personalised. The term ‘cookies’ in this Policy is used to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your language preferences or login information or analyse how well the site is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
