What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your computer or mobile device from a particular website. This enables the website to recognise your specific computer or mobile device if you should return to the same site.

Cookies are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information during one task
  • recognising that you have already given a username and password so you don't need to enter it for every web page requested
  • 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

A cookie often includes a unique identifier, which is a randomly generated number. This is stored on your device's hard drive. Many cookies are automatically deleted after you finish using a website. Cookies are not programs and do not collect information from your device.

What are log files?

Every time the website is accessed an entry is made in the web server's log file. This tells us broadly where an access is coming from, when it was made, which file was requested and whether the request was successful or not. It usually does not allow us to identify individual users. The data is used to assess usage levels and spot technical problems (such as broken pages or web server errors).
