What are cookies?
A cookie is a small amount of data sent to your computer or mobile phone from a website.

This is stored on your device’s hard drive. Many cookies are automatically deleted after you finish using a website. Cookies are not programs and do not collect information from your device.
Cookies may come with or without an expiry date. Cookies without an expiry date exist until the browser is closed, while cookies with an expiry date may be stored by the device until the expiry date passes.
You can restrict or block cookies set by this website but this may affect your experience on the website; parts of the site may not work or may not work properly.

You can usually find this out by opening the browser (just as if you were going to use the internet) and then clicking on ‘Help’ and then ‘About’. This will give you information about the browser version you are using.
