What are cookies?

Cookies are very small files that are stored on your device when you visit most websites. Cookies have many functions, such as letting you navigate through web pages efficiently or remembering your preferences which generally improves your website experience. In essence, cookies make the interaction between you and the website you are using faster and easier.

Most websites such as ours use cookies in order to improve your visit experience by enabling the website to remember you, either for:

  • Over repeat visits, using what is called a persistent cookie

Each cookie is unique to your web browser and will typically contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier, the site name and some digits and numbers. Cookies themselves do not contain any information that personally identifies you but personal information that we store about you (see the SRN Privacy Policy) may be linked by us to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. Cookies cannot carry viruses or install malware on your computer.

Some websites also use cookies to enable them to target advertising or marketing messages to you based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits. For more information visit the All About Cookies website.
