A cookie consists of a small amount of information sent by our web server to your web browser, where it’s stored. We use two types of cookie:
We use these cookies to anonymously track the pages and features visited on the site, helping us provide the comparison functionality (i.e. remember what you've selected) and improve the site moving forwards (basically so we can see what's popular and what's not). These are deleted when you close your browser.
If you’re a registered user we use these cookies to detect whether you’re logged in. This saves you the hassle of having to login every time you visit the site, if you select the 'remember me' option when logging in. The cookie will remain stored in your browser until you logout, delete it or it reaches a specified expiry date (latter two only if you selected 'remember me').
Most browsers allow you to reject cookies, please refer to your browser’s help section for information on how to do this. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking ‘Tools’, ‘Internet Options’, ‘Privacy’, and selecting ‘Block all cookies’ using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
