Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies mainly because they enable a better understanding of our visitors and their use of the site, which in turn enables us to generate advertising revenue. The advertising on this site pays for the site hosting & maintenance and time to develop more free resources. Without advertising there would be no Crickweb, as the saying goes "there's no such thing as a free lunch".
