What is a cookie?

A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device.  Each cookie is unique and can be used to identify or store information, e.g. it can allow a website to identify a visitor, track a visitor’s actions and/or remember a visitor’s preferences.

Cookies are often referred to as session-based (which only last whilst your browser is open and are erased after you close your browser) or persistent (which remain on your device until you or your browser delete them or they expire after a pre-defined period of time).

Why do we use cookies on CCT?

What do we do if you set “do not track” in your browser?

Many browsers allow you to adopt a “do not track” or “DNT” setting.  When DNT is enabled in your browser, the browser sends a signal to all websites you visit in that bowser that you do not want to be tracked.

If we receive a DNT signal from your browser we do not track your browser session.
