What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that websites can send to your computer, tablet or mobile phone. A
cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which tells a website when the
user has returned. Cookies are not computer programs, and can't read other information saved on your
hard drive. They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user's e-mail address etc. They
only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed
to that website.
Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would
be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping trolley or to remember the
user's preferences or registration details for a future visit. The European Union Directive on
Privacy and Electronic Communications (the "Directive") and its subsequent amendments, recognise
that cookies are a "legitimate and useful tool" for many activities, including verifying the
identity of website users. To make full use of the Ocado Technology Jobs website, your computer,
tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies.
