When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

Cookies are used to improve services for you, for example by:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you do not have to give the same information during one task
  • recognising that you have already given a username and password so you do not need to enter it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast.
