Cookies - New EU Rules

We all love Cookies, well the ones that you eat that is, but what of computer Cookies which are a piece of data stored by a website within a browser, and then subsequently sent back to the same website, if that makes sense?

Although cookies cannot carry viruses and cannot install malware on the host computer, tracking cookies and especially third-party tracking cookies are commonly used as way to compile long-term records of individuals' browsing histories, a major privacy concern that has prompted European and US law makers to take action

Cookies may have been explained as an evil and intrusive spying mechanism tracking your every move on the Internet - or a harmless device designed to make your life easier. The fact is that they can be either or both. However, there is one thing you can be sure of, Croydon TV does not, never has and never will use Cookies. We have a strict ethical policy of Safe Family Viewing and we constantly strive to maintain that standard.
