What are cookies?
In order to work properly, most websites need to collect some basic information from its users. To do this, a site will create files known as cookies (small text files), which are stored on users' computers.
Cookies serve many functions to enhance your user experience, such as remembering contents of a shopping basket or ensuring advertisements you see online are relevant to you. Most collected data is anonymous; some might be used to track browsing patterns and pinpoint general geographical location to improve user experience.
Some websites may also contain images called "web beacons". Web beacons only collect limited information, including a cookie number, a timestamp and a record of the web page. Websites may also use web beacons placed by third parties, for instance if you click on a link leading away from the website. These beacons do not carry any personally information and their purpose is to track the effectiveness of particular content (e.g., counting the number of visitors).
Information collected by cookies and web beacons is not personally identifiable.
