This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help us customise your experience.
This page contains information on what 'cookies' are and how to switch cookies off in your browser.
What are 'cookies'?
'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Apple Safari) on your computer or mobile device. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a 'memory' for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.
How do I turn cookies off?
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the 'Help' option in your browser for more details.
