What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data in a text file sent to your computer or mobile phone which allows a website to ‘remember’ what has happened between pages. It is stored on your device's hard drive. Cookies are not viruses. They are not programs and do not contain code. You can learn more about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.
These cookies are essential to allow you to move around the website and use its features. As you move between pages on the site, your web browser sends the cookie back to the web server each time so it can work out who has made the request.
Without cookies, our site would treat you like a first time visitor all of the time. So for example your registration would be unusable and your diary items would not be accessible. So without cookies the website would not work properly.
There are some cookies that are delivered by our website that are not, strictly speaking, essential but without which it would be very difficult if not impossible for us to continue to develop our business and the service that we provide. The Google Analytics cookie is one such example. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to work out what content is popular and what is not, nor would we be able to learn what information people are actually searching for when they land on our website for the first time.
