A cookie is a small data file that a website may store on your user device. Cookies track your movements through different websites; they do not record any other personal information about you.

Cookies are widely used on websites to help with navigation and to personalise your experience when you visit a website.

DB uses session cookies to temporarily store information to help you use this website. For example, a cookie is placed to remember the information you submitted on the age-gate page. Without this cookie, you would have to re-submit the age-gate form before every page you want to visit on the website. Session cookies expire immediately when you close your browser or are deleted after 30 minutes of no activity on the website.

DB also uses persistent cookies to personalise the user experience and to provide us with research information (such as how often you visit this website each month). If this website includes a "remember me" option when logging in, a persistent auto-login cookie may also be stored. The auto-login cookie will be removed if you log out.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your settings to prevent cookies being stored. However, if you do this, you may not be able to access or use all the features of this website.
