What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) from a website and is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Websites can send cookies to your browser if your preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy, a website can only access cookies that it has already sent to you. Many websites do this whenever a user visits, in order to track levels of online traffic.
When you visit this website, the pages you see are downloaded to your device along with a cookie. We do this to understand whether the device (and therefore probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done by checking to see it can find the cookie left there on the previous visit.
