What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small computer file, which may be downloaded to your computer's hard drive when you visit a website. Cookies are harmless files that can help improve your experience of using a website if your browser's preferences allow it. The website can tailor its operations to your needs, likes, and dislikes by gathering and remembering your online preferences.
Most cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser – these are called session cookies. Others, known as persistent cookies, are stored on your computer until you delete them or they expire (see the ‘How can I control or delete these cookies?' question below on how to delete cookies).
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website to tailor them to user needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
We also work with third parties in providing you services through our website and they may set a cookie on your computer as part of this arrangement.
In general, the cookies used by websiterating.com fall into three groups:
Critical: These cookies are necessary to enable you to use our website. Without these cookies, our website won't work properly and you may not be able to use it.
User interactions and analytics: These help us see which articles, tools and deals are of most interest to you. Information is all collected anonymously – we don't know which people have done what.
Any cookies which are not used to make your experience of getting to and using the website better only provide us with statistics about the way users, in general, navigate the website. We do not use any information derived from cookies to identify any individual users.
We audit the types of cookies that are used on our website, but it is possible that the services we use may make changes to their cookie names and purposes. Some services, particularly social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, change their cookies regularly. We always aim to show you up-to-date information, but may not be able to reflect these changes in our policy straightaway.

You can find instructions on how to do this by clicking ‘Help' in the menu bar, or following these browser-by-browser instructions from AboutCookies.org.
