More about cookies

A “cookie” is a text file containing a small amount of information which a server downloads to your personal computer (PC) or mobile when you visit a website. The next time you visit that website or any other website, your PC checks to see if it has a cookie that the website recognises. If it has such a cookie, it communicates with the website and enables the website to read the information held in that cookie.

We’ve developed an online tool to help you manage the cookies we use on the primary TforG website. To use the tool, your web browser needs to support JavaScript – if it doesn’t you can still find out about the cookies we use here, but you’ll need to manage them through your web browser settings.
We only read or write cookies for the preference level you set.

Cookies set prior to you changing your settings will still be on your computer and you can remove them using your browser settings. Read more about browser settings here.

We use a cookie to remember your preferences. This has a couple of consequences:

  • If you delete all your cookies you will have to update your preferences with us again.
  • If you use a different device, computer profile or browser you will have to tell us your preferences again.

Please be aware that pre-existing cookies from our site can only be removed manually using your browser controls. The tool that we have provided will only manage which cookies are dropped from the point that the tool settings are changed. Please consult the help function of your browser for details of how to manually delete pre-existing cookies.

Without them the websites and back end functionality of services you wish to use will not work at all.

These cookies don’t gather any information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.
