What is a cookie?

A cookie is a file sent by a website to your computer. We use cookies to identify your computer when you are on this website in order to improve our site and to deliver a personalised service. HIBL does not use cookies to collect your personal information. However, we do use the data we get from our website analytics service to analyse how visitors use our website.

If you are concerned about any of this, you can configure your browser to refuse or restrict the use of cookies at any time. However, if you refuse or restrict the use of cookies, you may be unable to access certain parts of our website. There are a number of ways that you can control and manage your cookies.

Managing cookies in your browser

Most browsers will allow you to see what cookies you’ve got and delete them on an individual basis. You can also block third party cookies, restrict cookies from particular sites, block all cookies from being set and delete all cookies when you close your browser. However, you should be aware that any preferences will be lost if you delete cookies. In addition, if you block cookies completely, many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all. Any settings you change will not just affect the HIBL website. These changes will apply to all websites that you visit (unless you choose to block cookies from particular sites only). The links below take you to the ‘Help’ sections for each of the major browsers so that you can find out more about how to manage your cookies.
