During the course of any visit to the Direct Voice and Data website, the pages you see together with a cookie, are downloaded to your computer. When you enter a site your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie.

Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server but cookies do not identify the individual user but simply the computer used. This is common to many sites whenever a user visits their site in order to track the flows of traffic.

Cookies themselves only record the areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question, and include information of how long you were accessing the site. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. In the later case this will mean that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that particular user.  These setting options will not prevent you from browsing our site.
