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, your computer or mobile phone.
They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you, for example, by:
- enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
- measuring how many people are using our website, so it can be made easier to use and there is enough capacity to ensure it is fast, and will work on your browser.
