What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file, which typically contains a site name and a unique user ID. If a site uses cookies, a cookie will be downloaded onto your device when you use that site for the first time. If you then return to that site, your device checks to see if it has a cookie that is relevant (contains the site name) and will then send that information back to the site.

What do we use cookies for?

We use cookies to give you a good experience on our website and to ensure that we provide the relevant content that visitors expect. The type of cookies we use are:

1. Fundamental to the use of the site (known as a session cookie)
2. Preference setting such as text size, high contrast and logging in to personalise your visit (known as a persistent cookie)
3. To help us evaluate and improve our site usage and plan improvements using Google Analytics and Siteimprove (also known as a session cookie)
4. To enhance the site we sometimes use photo and video content from other websites, for example, YouTube. Pages with embedded content, such as video, may present cookies from these sites.

This cookie is set by our Website customer survey system, Socitm Insight Website take-up service (WTS) to determine whether a customer has participated in the WTS survey on a subscriber's website or has rejected taking part. The survey uses this information to prevent the same customer using the same user account on the same computer from being asked to participate in the survey again during the current survey year.  The only use made of the cookies is to prevent customers being invited to participate multiple times in the same survey. They contain no personally identifiable information.
