What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file. It does not contain any personal information and is not able to collect information.

How long will cookies be stored on my computer?
Cookie lifetime may vary. Some cookies will disappear when you close the browser while others exist for longer. For more information on cookie expiry see the cookie declaration.
