Cookie Policy

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. 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 device for longer.

These pieces of information are used to improve your experience by, for example:

  • Enabling web services to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task (for example, by filling out a web form or a web survey);
  • 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 many people are using certain website services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are optimal; or
  • Analysing anonymised data to help understand how people interact with the different features of a website so they can be improved.
