1. What are Cookies?
A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers
to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that
the website can recognize you when you revisit and remember certain
information about you. This can include which pages you have visited,
choices you have made from menus, any specific information you have

enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an
online shopping basket.

persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing
sessions until expiry or deletion. They therefore enable the website
