For almost any modern website to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic information on its users. This helps us to present the next most relevant piece of information you have requested – some website’s call this optimised experience (buzzword, anyone?); we just refer to it as the best way possible to get you the most relevant information you have requested.
To do this, a site will create files known as cookies – which are small text files – and we place this on your device. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognise its users on subsequent visits, or to authorise other website pages to recognise you for a purpose – for instance, to remember your user ID and to help you navigate between pages more efficiently. Hopefully this will make your experience of the Tic:Toc site much smoother and more intuitive.
