What happens if I disable cookies?
Some browsers offer a Do Not Track (DNT) feature. When DNT is enabled, it will send a request to a website so that your browsing behaviour is not tracked. There is currently no consensus on how companies should interpret DNT, and as a result thecuriouscaterpillar.co.uk does not currently respond to these requests.
