What are cookies and why do we need them?
When we provide services, we try to make them easy to use, useful, and reliable. Delivery via the internet involves placing small amounts of information on the computer or other device. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services by, for example:
- Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task.
- Recognising that you may already have given a username and password, so you don't need to do so for every page you visit.
- Measuring how many people are using particular services.
If you do not accept cookies you will not be able to use this website.
