Service providers want to make their services easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer while you are visiting a website. These are called ‘cookies’.
Cookies help to make websites work. They can also provide information about how users interact with a website. These cookies cannot be used to identify you personally and are used to improve services for you through, for example:
- Enabling a service to recognise your computer so you don’t have to give the same information during one task; and
- 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.
You can learn more about cookies from AllAboutCookies.org or Directgov.
Visitors to a website typically have the opportunity to set their browser to accept all or some cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that personalised services cannot be provided and the user may not be able to take full advantage of all of a website’s features. Refer to your browser’s Help section for specific guidance on how it allows you to manage cookies and how you may delete cookies you wish to remove from your computer.
By law, we may not place cookies on your computer without your consent, unless they are strictly necessary to the operation of the service that we provide on the Website.
If you have any queries about the cookies that we use, or would like more information, please contact email@example.com.

Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this policy. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement or policy applicable to the website in question.
Controlling your personal information
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.
