How do we use cookies?

Use of Cookies:
A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer or device so that our website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you and are not computer programs, and can’t cause any damage to your computer.

What we use Cookies for:
We use two types of cookies within the online services you have requested. The cookies do not collect personal information and no personal information is sent to third parties.
Persistent Cookie
This retains the language preference (English or Welsh) you select when you first connect to our site and is not deleted when the browser is closed. It stays on your device until expiry or you decide to remove it. It contains a uniquely generated random number and expiry date. It does not contain any personal information.
Session Cookies
These are temporary cookies used within our online services that remain on your computer or device until you close your browser. Session Cookies allow us to carry information across pages of our site and avoid users having to re-enter information.

Disabling or Enabling Cookies:
By modifying the settings of your browser, you may opt to accept cookies, to be informed when one is about to be placed on your computer, or to automatically reject all cookies. However, if cookies are disabled, it may mean that our online services may not work.
