How we use cookies 

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie analyses your activity on a website.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages people who use our website are visiting on CBBFC. This gives us a good idea of what pages are popular and useful. It means we can think about how people use the website and make changes to make it better. We only use this information to help us analyse our website and to help us gather statistics. 

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. 

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
