Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognize you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

    They make your visit simpler by:
  • Remembering settings, so you don’t have to re-enter them at every page you visit (such as placing items in an ecommerce shopping basket)
  • Remembering information, you’ve given (such as a Zipcode) so you don’t need to keep re-entering it
  • Measuring how you use our website so we can improve it to meet your needs
