    If you click yes to accept it goes away. Everyone will have this displayed as its a new European Union law that was passed in May 2011 that requires users to be aware that cookies will be stored. :) x

    Just to let you guys know that this is safe! The irony of this message is, if you don't accept it and click on the 'X', it stores a cookie onto your device to say you've clicked on it! lol
