1. What are cookies?

Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and, for instance, remember your preferences and generally improve your online user experience. 

Although this notice refers to the general term ‘cookie’, it also applies to similar tracking technologies that we use (such as ‘web beacons’, ‘clear GIFs’ and ‘pixel tags’). This is because the rules apply both to cookies and other tracking technologies that gain access to information stored on a user’s device.
