What are cookies?
When we provide services, we want to make them easy to understand, useful and have a more focused user experience. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device and how you interacted with the website. 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.
You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them through cookies – what they are and how to manage them.
