tl;dr version - we don't track any personal data on the BRSA website and you don't need to have cookies enabled to view anything on the site.

The longer version:

Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer. No personal information is stored in the cookies set by the BRSA website.

If you do not have cookies enabled then you will still be able to browse the site and we won't nag you about it.
