Cookies

When we provide our services online, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Doing this on the internet sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device (computer or mobile phone). These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information 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 several times during one task;

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested;

  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast.

We do not use cookies for collecting user information and we will not collect any information about you except that required for system administration of our web server.
