1.0 - Introduction
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 text files known as cookies. Cookies cannot carry viruses, or install malware.
2.0 - What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file stored on your device (for example, your computer, smartphone or anything else you visit our website). Cookies cannot contain viruses and malware.
A cookie often contains a unique identifier and is stored on your device.
This information is used to improve the Service for you, for example:
- You do not have to provide the same information several times during a task, e.g. filling out a form
- you may already have given a username and password so you do not have to do it again
- measure how many people use the Service to make it easier to use
- analyze data to help us understand how people interact with the different aspects of the service so we can do them better
3.0 - Storing and deleting a cookie
Cookies automatically delete themselves after some time (which typically varies from cookie to cookie), but cookies can also be renewed automatically on each new visit to the Service.
