What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies are commonly used to record some aspect of your visit to a site, such as choices you have made or preferences you have set during your visit. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
Keeping your Personal Information Safe
Our cookies do not store personal information such as your name, address, phone number, email or IP address in a format that can be read by others. The cookies we use cannot read or search your computer, smartphone or web-enabled device to obtain information about you or your family, or read any material kept on your hard drive.
We do use a small number of cookies that store encrypted versions of information where you have asked us to, such as the “Remember me” function that allows us to remember your account username for subsequent visits. However, this information is encrypted so only we can read the information. The website that place a cookie owns the cookie. This means only that website and other websites that it has agreed to share information with can read the information stored by using a cookie.
