What are Cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Similar to cookies are clear GIFs, sometimes called web bugs or web beacons. Another cookie is a Flash cookie that is embedded in the Adobe Flash Player, which is a web tool that allows rapid development of dynamic content. Adobe Flash cookies may be used in certain situations where Flash is used to provide some content such as video clips or animation and to remember settings, preferences and usage. They are similar to ‘text or gif’ cookies (as described above) but are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your web browser.

Cookies once downloaded are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu for a video about cookies visit www.google.co.uk/ goodtoknow/data-on-the-web/cookies

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. The cookies used on this website have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide (http://www.international-chamber.co.uk/components/com_wordpress/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/icc_uk_cookie_guide.pdf).

Find out how to disable/enable browser cookies by clicking on the “Manage Cookies” section of the Interactive Advertising Bureau website on the following link www.allaboutcookies.org. You may access and manage Flash management tools such as flash cookies from Adobe’s web site directly at http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager06.html.
