9. A cookie is a small, unique text file that is saved on your hard disk by a website. The cookie is used by the website to identify your computer whenever you visit that website.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies can only be read by a web server from the same domain (e.g. www.short-codes.com) that saved the cookie on your computer.

At www.short-codes.com we use cookies to help you save time and provide you with a more personalised service on our website. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific Web page.

For example, if you personalise Web pages, or register for products or services, a cookie helps our Web page server to recall your specific information. When you next visit the Www.short-codes.com website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the website features that you previously chose.

If you use more than one computer, a cookie will be stored on each one so you will still receive a personalised online experience.

www.short-codes.com can also personalise the information you see based on what we already know about you, so that you spend less time looking for things. So, instead of one site for all www.short-codes.com customers, each www.short-codes.com customer can have a site which is unique to them.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
