What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data sent to your computer or mobile phone from a website. It often includes a unique identifier and is stored on your device’s hard drive. IFPBM doesn’t use cookies to collect information that can be used to identify you.

By default, your browser will only allow a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, and not the cookies sent to you by any other website. This is to protect your privacy.
