What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on a user’s computer by the Web server through a user’s browser. A cookie itself is not designed or intended to read any information from your computer (other than the contents of the cookie); rather, it is an identifier used by the Web site that originally placed it on your hard drive. The actual contents of the cookie information can be retrieved by the same server to identify the computer and subsequently to customise, monitor, or regulate the use of the site based on information stored in the cookie or host server. Therefore, cookies allow us to automate access and data entry functions of our site such as login information, correlate online ordering information for purchases you may make while at the site (if any), tailor the site to your preferences or interests, or customise promotions or marketing.
To make full use of the features on this website your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies.
