What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which are stored by your internet browser onto your computer or mobile device. Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a website, can be stored in a cookie. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer, and only the site that created the cookie can read it.
The NAT does not at this time use special cookies to gather information when you visit our website.
However, the website building service we use (SiteMaker Software Limited and their website www.moonfruit.com) uses session cookies to ensure that you can interact with our website successfully. The cookies they may use when you visit the NAT’s website are as follows:
fb_link records whether a user has logged into the site using Facebook Connect. It is necessary for this login function to work, but if visitors login with a different method, it will contain no value.
markc is reported as a general session cookie that records visitor choices while on the site, but is destroyed when the browser is closed.
Managing your cookies
You have a number of options when it comes to receiving cookies. You can set your browser either to reject all cookies, to allow only “trusted” sites to send them, or to accept only those cookies from websites you are currently using. The process will depend on your browser and is usually part of your “Security settings”. For further information about managing and disabling cookies please refer to your browser’s help section or user guide.
