Other similar files work in the same way and we use the word ‘cookie’ in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
    2. Cookies are an extremely common technology for remembering certain information about a Visitor to a website. The vast majority of websites currently make use of cookies and they are commonly used for a wide range of tasks. We use cookies for the following purposes:
