What are cookies? – They are small text files that are saved to the hard drive by your web browser. Cookies have a number of practical purposes and almost all websites use them to some extent. In themselves cookies do not pose any threat to your security, but they can be used to transfer information, particularly about your web activity.

We never gather any personal data from these. Advert tracking by 3rd parties can be avoided by simply not clicking the links. Our own banner ads do not use cookies.
