Cookies and Other Technologies

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded on to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are used by many websites and can do a number of things, eg remembering your preferences, recording what you have put in your shopping basket, and counting the number of people looking at a website.

The rules on cookies are covered by the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. The Regulations also cover similar technologies for storing information, eg Flash cookies. The Regulations were revised in 2011, and the ICO (The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals) is responsible for enforcing these rules.
