Cookie Policy


This page is for grown ups. It tells grown ups that we send cookies (not the type you eat!) to your computer or mobile to help us make Beano work better and to tell us if Beano has crashed (ooops!!). We hope this is OK but, if not, your grown up can help you get rid of cookies.

Please show this page to your parent or guardian before you use the Beano site ☺
