What are Cookies?

Cookies are little pieces of information which pass between any website you are visiting and your computer, tablet or smartphone.

They are very clever and can be used to record how long you spend on a webpage, what links you click, even your preference for page layouts and colour schemes. They can also be used to store data on what is in your 'shopping cart', or tailor the adverts you see online to reflect your interests.
