What is a cookie? – ‘Cookies’ are small text files that websites may place on your computer, mobile device or tablet. They’re used to remember what you have done on a website in order to improve your browsing experience, to help remember log-ins, or to provide advertising while visiting a particular site.
You can decide whether to accept or reject cookies from us – it’s your choice.
Why we use them? – We use different types of cookies for different functions.
Some cookies allow you to stay logged in while you browse our site. If you didn’t have a cookie for this purpose, you would need to log in every time you loaded a different page from our site. We think this would be a very annoying experience.
Cookies help us identify which of our articles, discussions, videos or documents are the most popular and what type of journey a visitor has through our sites. After we don’t want to spend a lot of time publishing things no-one is interested in.
We place a cookie when you visit a page on which we show an advert. This helps us to collect anonymous information about how frequently adverts are clicked and to understand how interesting and attractive our adverts are. We don’t pass this information to third parties.
A list of all the cookies we use, along with our advert network and technology partners can be found in our cookie list.
Some of the functionality of our website will be lost if you delete all cookies.
All of the ‘popular’ browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. To help you better understand these settings, the following links may be helpful to you, otherwise you should use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.
