They are plain-text files that cannot be self-executed or self-replicated, so they cannot be harmful on their own. They don’t tell us who you are but they do enable us to recognise your device and where you have made various preferences or actions they enable us to remember them.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between web pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience of our websites.
