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, such as your 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 user name 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 use temporary cookies on our website to help you create a personal profile and recieve updates when new information is added to the site. When you log in to the 'my profile' section a cookie is placed on your computer. This enables the website to recognise your user details so you can update your personal profile and preferences. Once you have logged out the cookie expires.
