We want our services to be easy, useful and reliable. For services delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These small files are known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve 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 manage cookies yourself and learn more about them on http://www.aboutcookies.org/

If you do choose not to accept cookies, this may significantly undermine your use and your experience of the website. Technology IQ Ltd cannot be held liable for any negative impact on your experience of our website resulting from the decision to block our website cookies.
Some of our services use session cookies to remember that you have made a selection or chosen preferences. They also help keep track of your progress so you don't have to give the same information twice. Session cookies do not contain any personal information about you and they are deleted when you leave the site. Some services will not work if your browser does not have cookies enabled.
