Cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website(s), which helps us to provide you with a better experience when browsing our website(s) and also allows us to improve our website(s). Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally.
— 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 so you don’t need to do it for every web page
— 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
Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the website(s) work better for you. In fact you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.
