Why we use Cookies

Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally.

The information typically stored in cookies is used to improve services for you. 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.
  • Analysing data to help us understand how you use our services so we can improve on them.
