A cookie allows the Website to remember things from page to page, such as a list of matching properties found as a result of a property search.

A cookie only sends back the information it has stored. This means that our Website cannot obtain any information from a cookie about you or your computer that you have not already provided through our Website.

Your browser only accepts the cookies which our Website sends to it, and sends these back to us, if your browser’s settings allow this. You can set your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent.
