Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
There are two main kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach their expiry date.

Your browser settings will automatically allow some cookies to be accepted. Should you wish to switch off this feature, you can do so by visiting the "options" or "preferences" setting on your browser. It's worth being aware that blocking cookies in that way can prevent a website from delivering basic functions, so if a website starts to seem broken, it may be because essential cookies are being blocked.
