  1. When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer, which is sent back to us at a later time. These are called ‘cookies’. These cookies are listed in the table at clause 8.5. Some websites don’t use cookies but use related technology for gaining information about website users such as JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalise advertising content. Multiple cookies may be found in a single file depending on which browser you use.
  2. Where applicable, this section of the Notice also relates to that technology but the term ‘cookie’ is used throughout.
  3. Some of these cookies are essential to services you’ve requested from us, whereas others are used to improve services for you, for example through:
    1. Letting you navigate between pages efficiently
    2. Enabling a service to recognise your computer so you don’t have to give the same information during one task
    3. Recognising that you have already given a username and password so you don’t need to enter it for every web page requested
    4. Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast
