A cookie is a small data file that most major web sites write to your hard disk for record keeping purposes when you visit them. Cookies allow us to measure activity on the website and to improve your user experience, for example by remembering your passwords and viewing preferences, thus allowing you to visit various client-only parts of the website without re-registering. When cookies are used on this website, they are used to measure activity and make improvements and updates based on which areas are popular and which are not.
Most internet browsers are set up to accept cookies. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may be able to change the settings of your browser to refuse all cookies or to have your computer notify you each time a cookie is sent to it, and thereby give yourself the choice whether to accept it or not. However, this may impair the quality of the services that we provide to you in relation to your account.
