Cookie Policy

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve it.

A cookie is a piece of data sent to your device from a website. This means the website can recognise your device if you return to the same website. Cookies do not contain any personal information about you and cannot be used to identify an individual user. A cookie often includes a unique identifier, which is an anonymous number (randomly generated) and is stored on your device. Some expire at the end of your website session; others remain on your computer for longer.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested (please note, the session cookies used are to track your current session (e.g. determining authentication status) - the username and password are not stored in a cookie)li>
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure that they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our services so that we can make them better
