What are cookies, and what are they used for?
Cookies (or similar technologies) are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your browsing device (such as a computer or smartphone) when you visit a platform. Cookies can be recognised by the platform that downloaded them — or other platforms that use the same cookies. This helps platforms know if the browsing device has visited them before.
If you disable these cookies, you may be able to still browse the site, however you may not be able to make purchases or take advantage of other features. Please note that cookies are computer specific, so if you log on to any site from a different computer, the cookie settings on that computer will apply. For more information about cookies you can visit https://www.aboutcookies.org/.
