What Are Cookies?
A web cookie is simply a piece of text which can be placed on the browser of your personal computer or mobile device and subsequently read as you visit a web site. A cookie may be a session cookie, that is, a cookie that remains on your browser while you are logged on to a particular web site and then disappears when you close your browser, or it may be a persistent cookie, that is, a cookie that remains on your browser over a specified period of time.
We use session cookies to:
- Help us maintain security and authenticate your details whilst you use the portal as you navigate from page to page, which enables you to avoid having to re-enter your details each time you enter a new page; and
- Remember how you have customised your use of the portal, such as preferred currency, session activity for timeout and time zone.
We use persistent cookies to:
- Help us recognise you as a unique user when you return to the portal so that you do not have to input your details multiple times as you move between our pages or services; and
- Collect and compile anonymous, aggregated information for statistical and evaluation purposes to help us understand how users use the portal and help us improve the structure of the portal.
