What are cookies?
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 (e.g. your computer or mobile phone). These are small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
Cookies are stored on your device to enable the visited website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you return to the site. Cookies are not dangerous, however they are significant for privacy protection. It is important that we let you know which cookies we use, and why. Cookies cannot be used for identifying individual visitors to the website, nor for fraudulent use of login credentials.
