Cookie Usage


The provision of useful, easy and reliable services sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. This information include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

Cookies are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information during one task
  • recognising that you have already given a username and password so you don’t need to enter it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast

You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them from allaboutcookies.org.
