Cookies Policy

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit.  They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies are used on websites to recognise a user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions. 

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 the Information Commissioner’s Office website:
