To do this, we collect cookies.
Cookies are small file, placed on your computer, mobile phone or other device in order to provide a better service and user experience. Simply put, without cookies, most websites would cease to function in the interactive way you have come to expect. Cookies on our website cannot be used to identify you personally.
Amongst other things, cookies are used for:
- Preventing repetitive requests for the same information during a task, including not repeatedly asking for a user and password for every web page visited.
- Monitoring visitor activity anonymously, in order to better understand numbers using a website.
- Analysing anonymous data to better understand interaction with a website in order to increase usability of a site.
- Storing of data within a browser for use later in the website. For instance, cookies are necessary for most shopping carts to remember the contents of the cart etc.
