- Analytical purposes: Analytical cookies allow the website operator to recognise, measure and track users of a site in anonymous form. The information collected includes the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages that they have visited. This helps the website operator to improve the way the site works, for example, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of websites that are of the most interest to them.
- Usage preferences: Some of the cookies on the site are activated when visitors make a choice about their usage of the site. The site then ‘remembers’ the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows the website operator to tailor aspects of the site to the individual user.
- Functional purposes: Functional purpose cookies store information that is needed by our applications to process and operate. For example, where transactions or requests within an application involve multiple workflow stages, cookies are used to store the information from each stage temporarily, in order to facilitate completion of the overall transaction or request.
