Cookie Policy

How do cookies work?

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally. It enables our own system to recognize you when you visit our website again and improve our service to you. 

This information can be used to enhance the content of our website and make your use of it easier & improve services, for example: 

  • Enabling a service to recognize 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. 

You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them through Internet browser cookies.
