What are cookies?

Cookies are pieces of information which include a unique reference code that a website transfers to your device to store and sometimes track information about you. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session ("session cookies") and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are used, for example, to remember you when you return to the site and will last for longer ("persistent cookies"). Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They are uniquely assigned to your device and are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit (if they last longer than a web session) or to another website that recognises that cookie.

Some of the cookies used by our sites are set by us, and some are set by third parties who are delivering services (such as web analytics) on our behalf.

What do we use cookies for?

Some cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like MyEMIS, cannot be provided. Because such cookies are essential for using a site, these cookies cannot be turned off without severely affecting your use of the website.

Other cookies perform various functions, as the table below explains, together with your options for controlling them.

Some cookies may also be controlled by using your web browser settings. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set.
