What cookies do we use, and why?
A cookie is just a very small text file that sits on your computer that is created by a website you're browsing. In this case, it's made by us, or by a third party we use.
We do, however, use Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics to help us work out what people are looking at on the website and how they found us. The data Google Analytics stores and shows us is anonymous - we don't know who you are, where you live or anything about you in particular, we simply know the pages that have been visited. The analytics we're shown aren't specific to any one person - for example, Google Analytics tells us how many people have visited the search page, but not who visited the home page.

If you accept then AdSense will set some cookies to help it serve better and more relevant ads to you. AdSense also shares some data with some selected third parties to help better the products and serve you better ads.
