a. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, sent to the browser of your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") from a website's computer. It is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, and not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits them to track online traffic flows.
On this web site cookies are only used to remember registered user details and the site can be browsed quite satisfactorily by the casual visitor without accepting cookies.
You can set your device’s preferences to accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is issued, or not receive cookies at all. If you are a registered user on the site (i.e. an Administrator) then selecting the last option will mean that you will not not stay logged in and will have problems editing the site.
