Cookies are little files that all websites put on our hard drives to help make our visits quicker, easier and more relevant to us. Some cookies are essential for websites to work and others remember things about you to give you a better and more enjoyable experience online.

Our cookies and what they do for you:

Cookies that save your settings

These cookies are used to show you adverts relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert, as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks, with Virgin Media's permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.
