What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
We have compiled a list of the most common browsers and how to control the behaviour of cookies on your device:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0 - 11.0
Select the ‘Tools->Internet Options’ menu item, and then open the ‘Privacy’ tab – you can then adjust the slider to block or allow various categories of cookie. Alternatively by clicking ‘Advanced…’ you can exercise finer control over the browser’s behavior, choosing whether to accept, block, or prompt for cookies originating either on the website you are visiting (first party cookies) or originating from websites other than the one you are visiting (third party cookies, typically used by banner advertisements hosted on an advertiser’s website).
Click the ‘parallel bars’ menu button, choose the ‘Settings’ option, then scroll down and click the ‘Advanced’ link. Alternatively for older versions of Chrome choose ‘Options’ on the ‘Customize and control’ menu, then open the ‘Under the Bonnet’ tab. In the ‘Privacy and security’ section, click on the ‘Content settings…’ button and then the ‘Cookies’ option. Set the required cookie behaviour – add URLs to the ‘Block’, Clear on Exit’ and ‘Allow’ sections to configure cookie behavior for specific websites.
Firefox 7.0 and up
Use the ‘Tools->Options’ menu item (may be under the Firefox button or ‘parallel lines’ menu button), then choose the ‘Privacy’ tab. Set the ‘Firefox will:’ option to ‘Use custom settings for history’. Now you can choose whether cookies are enabled for websites you visit and third party websites, and if so how long they will persist. You can also use the ‘Exceptions’ button to override the settings for particular websites.
Choose ‘Preferences…’ on the ‘Settings’ or ‘Edit’ menu (Windows) or the Safari menu (MacOS), then open the ‘Privacy’ tab. Now set the required cookie behaviour.
Tap the ‘Internet’ icon to start the browser, then press the phone’s menu button. From the list of options, choose ‘More’, and then select ‘Settings’, then ‘Privacy and Security’. Scroll down the resulting list and check or uncheck the ‘Accept Cookies’ item.
Iphone or Ipad
From the home screen tap the ‘Settings’ icon, then choose ‘Safari’. Find the ‘Accept Cookies’ option and set the required cookie behaviour.
Open the browser from the home screen, then press the Menu key, followed by ‘Options’. Under ‘Privacy & Security’ you can choose whether or not to ‘Accept Cookies’. Press the Menu key and select ‘Save’ to save your selection.
