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, such as a computer, tablet or mobile phone, in small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through:
- recording your preferred language, so you don’t have to give the same information several times
- to ensure there’s enough server capacity, and to speed up web page delivery
