Cookie permissions and GDPR
Websites rely on cookies – tiny files – to store information on peoples’ computers, be that a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop. These can be used to tailor your experience when you use a website, but since they’re unique to each person, they can also be used for targeted advertising and tracking. They’re also especially useful for analytics data, which can help you learn more about how visitors use your website.
