To make this site work properly, MicroChip had to place small data files called cookies onto your device. Most big websites do this, too.
What are cookies?
It’s not the kind Micro crams into his mouth often. Rather it’s a kind of cookie which consist of a small text file a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as logins, languages, font sizes and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionality may not work.
