A "cookie" is a small piece of information, like a tag, which websites store on your PC or mobile phone to identify your computer. Identifying individual computers allows websites to do things like personalizing your browsing experience based on your previous actions. Please note that our cookies can't harm your computer, and we don't store personally identifiable information such as credit card details in the cookies we create.
Cookies also help us to understand the traffic that comes to Master Chef, and what it does when it gets there. We call these "Performance" cookies, and they don't store any personalized information that could be used to identify you. They're there to help us identify what pages people visit, what works best and worst about our website, and how well our advertising performs. The information is aggregated together by independent third parties and we can use it only to see numbers of people taking certain actions (eg placing an order, or leaving the website from a certain page). This information stays aggregated together and is not tied back to individual customer records.
If you wish to block all cookies on your computer, we can't predict how our website will perform during your visit. However, if you still wish to, it is possible to do so using your web browser settings.
