What do cookies do?
Cookies help to make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. For example, they can remember your preferences, login details or information you supply as you move through an application process. What cookies don't do is store any personal or confidential information about you.
Cookies are important for things like online shopping – for example they'll remember the items in your shopping basket and make sure they stay there until you complete your transaction.
In a similar way, when you decide to buy on neccontract.com, cookies help our site remember the information you give us as you move through your application. When you revisit a website, cookies also help the site to remember your preferences or registration details.
Some of our cookies enable us to learn which advertisements bring customers to our website. This helps us manage our advertising spend by only using adverts and websites that prove to be effective.
Are cookies safe?
Yes, cookies are small text files. They cannot look into your computer or read any personal information or other material on your hard drive. Cookies cannot carry viruses or install anything harmful on your computer.
Why should I keep cookies switched on?
We would like you to keep cookies active on your computer during your visits to our website because parts of the site rely on them to work properly.
