Privacy and Cookies
The login procedure for the GBPS website makes use of standard "cookies" (text files consisting of a login code sent to your browser, which will return them on future page requests to authenticate you as the person who logged in). You are legally entitled to refuse the use of these cookies -- however, since you need to actually register for an account with the site before you can log in, registering will be taken as agreement to allow them. Please note that access to some features of the site requires you to be logged in (posting on the discussion boards, for example).
This is a fairly standard procedure for logging in to sites, we hasten to add, so shouldn't cause any privacy problems.
