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. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally. 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 or 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. This website uses a cookie control system, allowing the user to give explicit permission or to deny the use of cookies on their device.

We may make assumptions on your age, gender, and interests based on this information. This helps us to continuously improve our website. We use Google Analytics to help us do this.
