WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.
Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).
WHAT DO COOKIES DO?
Cookies have lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and improving your experience of a website.
Ontoit uses different types of cookies to enhance and improve your experience.
This may include the pages you visit most often and when and where users get error messages.
We use these “session state cookies” to help us improve our Site and Services.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU DON’T WANT COOKIES SET?
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device to be intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing.
Although cookies are generally quite harmless, you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests using your browser history.
If you prefer, you may choose to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you should be aware that you might lose some functions of the website.
If you want to restrict or block the cookies that are set by our website, or any other site, you can do so through your browser setting.
