We want our services to be easy, useful and reliable to use. For services delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These small files are known as cookies.
These pieces of information are used to improve services by, for example:
- enabling a service to recognise your device so you do not have to give the same information several times during one task
- recognizing that you may already have given a username and password so you do not 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
