When CITB provides Internet based services, we want to make them accessible, valuable, and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device (e.g. your computer, mobile phone).
These small files, known as cookies, are not used to identify you personally but to improve our services by, for example:
- enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
- recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
- measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
You can learn more about how to manage these small files yourself on the About Cookies website.
