What are cookies?
We want all of our services to be easy to use, useful and reliable. This includes our online services. In order for us to do this, we have to place small files, called cookies, on your device. Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally, but they do include a unique string of random letters and numbers used to identify your device. This string is your ‘identification card’, which can only be read by our servers.
Where can I find out more about cookies?
If you’d like to find out more about cookies and how to manage them, you can visit the Gov.uk website.

If you use a mobile device, such as a phone or tablet, we suggest you consult the manual for your device, as these usually have specialised browsers.

What cookies can we use?
