A cookie is a small file of text which we transfer to your hard drive through your web browser, as with most websites, when you visit our website and use certain pages or features on the site, especially when placing an order. It enables our own system to recognise you when you visit our website again and improve our service to you.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
– Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
– Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
– Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them through Internet browser cookies – what they are and how to manage them.
