BN:Coded's Cookie Policy

Cookie Policy

FIRSTLY…
If you are looking for real cookies with chocolate chips or nuts in this isn’t the page you’re looking for! For these yummy snacks, brownies and homemade cakes we would recommend Swains Farm Shop and Garden Centre in Henfield, West Sussex, we built them a website and had a taster of some of their delicious snacks whilst finding out a bit more about them. Anyway, back to the point in hand, this page deals with digital cookies nowhere near as tasty, but you should be aware of them all the same!

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT COOKIES
This page contains information on what ‘cookies’ are, the cookies used by the BN:Coded Limited website, how to switch cookies off in your browser, and some useful links for further reading on the subject.

WHAT ARE ‘COOKIES’?
‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Chrome, FireFox, Safari and Internet Explorer) on your computer, tablet or mobile phone.
