3. WHAT ARE COOKIES
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
For example, we may monitor your search and browser history, IP addresses, cross-website tracking information, user behaviour on a website, browsing patterns, approximate geographical location, device data, history and preferences. This information helps us to remember your preferences on sites you visit often, to remember your user ID and historical transactions, and to help you navigate between pages more efficiently. They also help us to ensure that any preferences you see on our site are more relevant to you and your interests.

7. WHAT IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO US MONITORING YOUR USE OF OUR WEBSITE (EVEN IF WE DO NOT COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA)?
Third-party cookies are often blocked and deleted through browser settings and security settings; by default, Mozilla Firefox blocks all third-party cookies; Chrome and Apple Safari have recently begun doing so as well. Blocking third-party cookies does not create login issues on websites (which can be an issue after blocking firstparty cookies) and may result in seeing fewer ads on the internet. However, blocking all cookies can sometimes lead to problems, as some websites rely on first-party cookies to function properly. If you do not want to accept any cookies, you may be able to change your browser settings so that cookies (including those which are essential to the services requested) are not accepted. If you do this, please be aware that you may lose some of the functionality of our website.
For further information about cookies and how to disable them please go to the guidance on cookies published by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
