Whenever you give us your personal data, you are consenting to its collection and use in accordance with this privacy policy. We may change our privacy policy at any time without giving you notice, so please check it each time you visit our website.

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 computer.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a piece of data sent to your device from a website. This means the website can recognise your device if you return to the same website. Cookies do not contain any personal information about you and cannot be used to identify an individual user. A cookie often includes a unique identifier, which is an anonymous number (randomly generated) and is stored on your device. Some expire at the end of your website session; others remain on your computer for longer.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them 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
  • measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs
