Cookies are small text files, with ID tags that are stored on your device (computer/ mobile/ tablet) when visiting certain websites. Cookies track certain activities or preferences. Internet cookies are common and won’t cause any harm to your device.
Cookies can either be first party, which are associated with the host domain e.g. jumbonews.co.uk, or third party cookies from any other domain including web analytics and advertising services.
Web Beacons, also called Pixel Tags or Clear Gifs, are used in combination with cookies to understand user behaviour. A web beacon is typically a transparent graphic image (1 x 1 pixel) placed on a site or in an email. Although Web beacons provide similar functions to cookies, Web Beacons are not placed on your device. If you turn off cookies, web beacons will simply detect an anonymous visit.
