General Information about Cookies
What is a Cookie?
A Cookie refers to the way in which a website communicates with your computer. It is a packet of data that a computer receives and then sends back without changing or altering it and it is stored in a file on your computer most commonly called ‘Cookies’. Different types of Cookies keep track of different activities.
How does a Cookie work?
Cookies help websites to track visits and what the visitor does whilst on a website. For businesses, they are useful as they help buyers but also reveal habits and interests of their visitors. Cookies help businesses to improve their range of goods and services and tell the website owner if they are getting any visitors to their website. Another use for Cookies is that they keep records of your previous visit which can save time when logging in again.
Are Cookies safe?
Cookies have no way of affecting how your computer runs and are not usually capable of transferring viruses or malware to your computer. This is because the packet of data in a Cookie does not change when it travels back and forth. Sadly, some viruses and malware may be disguised as Cookies and some third-party Cookies can also cause security and privacy concerns as they make it easy for third parties to track your movements when you are online.
Accepting or Not Accepting Cookies
If you find and ‘Do Not Accept’, ‘Deny’, ‘Refuse’ or ‘Ban’ all Cookies, some websites might not work as well as they would if you ‘Accept’ the Cookies. This means that you may not be able to log in properly or some features of the website may not perform as well as they would if you ’Accept’ Cookies.
If you chose to apply some control to certain Cookies, then this may help to protect your privacy whilst allowing you to use the website. You would need to refer to each website to identify your options.
Managing Cookies using browser settings
You can use your web browser settings to delete, block, allow, block ‘third party’ cookies or to clear all cookies when you close your browser. You can also install add-ons and plugins that extend browser functionality or open a private browsing session, which allows you to browse the web without recording your browsing history or storing local data (N.B. There are limitations to this feature)
Will my choice in how I manage Cookies be the same across all my devices?
