Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

On Widebeam Digital websites, cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor our websites to your interests.
During the course of any visit to a Widebeam Digital website, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.
b. How does Widebeam Digital use cookies?
Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. All third parties are strictly required not to use any information for their own business or other purposes (see section 6 above).
