Like most websites, the Ego Restaurants website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file comprised of numbers and letters that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables our website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time, which helps us provide the best user experience to you on our sites. Cookies also make our websites work appropriately. They contain information about the use of your computer but don’t include personal information about you (they don’t store your name, email address or telephone number for instance).

 

This policy explains how cookies are used on the Ego Restaurants websites in general – and, below, how you can control the cookies that may be used on this site (not all of them are used on every site).
