We suggest consulting the ‘Help’ section of your browser or taking a look at the ‘About Cookies’ website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.
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, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. We cannot use cookie data alone to identify you personally (e.g. they do not allow us to identify you by name or email address).
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 to ensure that there’s enough capacity on the servers to allow optimum delivery of the site
You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them. We have included some helpful links in the ‘Removing and disabling cookies’ section below.
We have tried to cover all cookies in this list that we or our service providers use. Please be aware that there may be a delay in updating this list. If you do notice any discrepancies please be sure to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
