The Yorkshire and Humber ODN website utilises a standard technology called 'cookies' to collect information about how our website is used and to record your preferences in order to give you the information you need during your visit. Information gathered through cookies allows us to monitor website traffic and to personalise the content of the site for you.
A cookie is a very small text document which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
