are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a Web server in
the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The
purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise pages on our website or
register for the Subscription Service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to our website,
the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customised features.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser
settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of our
website. The AHOY Centre keeps track of the pages you visit on our website to determine what portion of our website is the most popular or
most used. This data is used to deliver customised content and promotions within our website to customers whose behaviour indicates that
they are interested in a particular subject area.
