A “cookie” is a text file with a small amount of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system or device. It can enable you to use certain functionality of the website, and to provide you with a tailored visitor experience. Cookies are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie and your device. Cookies can remember your preferences, track your usage and allow for a personalized user experience.
You can opt-out of having your anonymized browsing activity within websites recorded by analytics cookies. Please bear in mind that removing or blocking cookies can impact your visitor experience and parts of this website may no longer be fully accessible.
Most browsers will allow you to see what cookies you have and delete them on an individual basis or block cookies from particular or all websites. Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies, including your preference to opt-out from cookies as this itself requires an opt-out cookie to have been set. You cannot remove or block web beacons, as they form part of the content of the web pages rather than placing information on your computer. However, because they work in conjunction with cookies, turning off cookies will prevent web beacons from tracking your visitor activity. The web beacon will record an anonymous visit, but cookies will not be recorded. For more information on how to modify your browser settings to block or filter cookies, see this tutorial.
