What are cookies?
Cookies are little snippets of information that are stored on your computer by a website, and they're normally used to keep track of something - who you're logged in as, or what you've got in your shopping basket, for example - as you move between pages on a website.
The problem with cookies
Because of the privacy implications of being tracked by cookies, a new EU directive requires that websites obtain consent before using cookies.
Advertising on this site is managed by us, so there are no third-party advertising websites gathering information on you.
