Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and sorted on a user’s web browser while the user is browsing.
Some of the common uses for cookies are as follows:
- To recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they are using it. This can help us to improve the way our Website functions;
- To identify and authenticate a user across different pages of our Website, within our own Website, in a session or across different sessions. This is so that the user does not need to provide a password on every page the user visits; and
- To be able to retrieve a user’s previously stored data, for example, information that the user previously submitted to the Website, so as to facilitate reuse of this information by the user.
