Cookies and how we use them

A cookie is a small file which is placed on your computer's hard drive when you are browsing the internet. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

It should be noted that cookies are generated by a web page server, which is basically the computer that operates a web site. The information the cookie contains is set by the server and it can be used by that server whenever the user visits the site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which tells a web site when the user has returned. The cookie is identifying the computer user, not an individual person.

Although the cookies are stored on the computer's hard drive, they cannot read other information saved on the hard drive, or get a user's e-mail address etc. As a file made up of small pieces of text, they are not computer programs and they can't be executed as code. Also, they cannot be used to disseminate viruses.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and to ensure that we are providing relevant content and to improve the experience for our website visitors.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you.
