It is your responsibility to configure your browser to reject cookies from our sites if you do not wish to accept our cookies. We use cookies to operate user log in systems, e.g. on Reckon Online. When you log in or edit a page, a cookie is sent to you by the server. It contains the name of the domain using the cookie, an expiry time, and a machine-generated unique reference code to identify your account or session. Providers of third-party content embedded in our pages (e.g. advertising or videos) may use their own cookies, under their own policies.
