Digital Search Group Limited Cookie Policy

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device. The cookie does not harm your device and stores information which is sent to the website server. Nearly all big websites do this, but why?

Cookies can help websites improve things by:

– Remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
– Remembering information you’ve given (e.g. your postcode) so you don’t need to keep entering it
– Measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs
– Managing which adverts you see on websites

Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the site work better for you. Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.

To learn more about cookies and how to manage them, visit AboutCookies.org. Or please read on to find out more about how and where we use cookies.
