A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on your hard drive. It is generated by a web server, which is basically the computer that operates a web site. The information the cookie contains is set by the server and it can be used by that server whenever the user visits a site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which tells a web site when the user has returned.

GG.COM currently sets a total of five types of cookies for various purposes:
We set a unique identifier in the form of a cookie so we can recognise when you are logged in with us and to accommodate other associated preferences you have selected, for example; specific bookmaker odds on race cards. We provide a specific opt-in before setting this cookie as part of our registration process.
If you use the bet calculator available on our site, we store information in your browser which remembers your inputs making it possible to compile and calculate the return on potential bets across a number of pages. No personally identifiable information is stored and it is automatically deleted when you start a new bet, or close your browser.
Sometimes we may want to try out new features of the site on a small group of users before deciding whether to roll those changes out for everyone. In this instance, we will set a cookie on your machine to let us know if you are part of the test group or not. No personally identifiable information is stored in this cookie and it is automatically expired at the end of the test.
Australian users accessing GG.COM are automatically redirected to our Australian sister site, GG.COM.AU. In the event those users inform us they want to view UK and Irish racing, we set a cookie so we remember not to redirect them to GG.COM.AU again. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information and expires automatically if you do not access GG.COM for 30 days.
