When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer. These are called 'cookies'.
These cookies cannot be used to identify you personally and are used to improve services for you, for example through:
a) Letting you navigate between pages efficiently
b) Enabling a service to recognise your computer so you don't have to give the same information during one task
c) Recognising that you have already given a username and password so you don't need to enter it for every web page requested
d) Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast
