A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. They are primarily used to store information about you to speed up your interactions with online applications. They are also used to store information about the number of people looking at a website and to monitor how users navigate a site.

Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to use the products or services that require you to ‘sign in’ and you may not be able to take full advantage of using the website.
