What are cookies? They’re not for dipping in milk so what are they?

No, you can’t eat these cookies! They are pieces of information that a website can transfer to your computer or device's hard drive. They can make websites easier to use by storing information about your preferences. The TD Summer Reading Club website uses cookies to:

  • remember the Library system you chose so we can give you quick access to information about your Library and link books, when possible directly to your Library's website so you can go and get them.
  • remember which games you've played and where you are in certain games so when you are off playing outside can come back to the website, you don't have to start all over again.

This information stays on your computer after you have left the site, but can be delete by you. If you want to do this, you must discuss this with your parents before doing so.

Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. If you prefer not to receive them, you can adjust your Internet browser to refuse cookies or to warn you when cookies are being used.

As before, you must discuss this with your parents before making any changes. Our site will work better if you allow cookies, but it will still work if you disable them.

What about websites we link to?

Websites we link you to are not covered by this Privacy Policy. If you do access other sites using the links provided, they might collect and use your information in a different way to TDSRC.

Can I access any personal data you have about me?
