A cookie is a small file that contains a unique alphanumeric code selected randomly. This cookie is stored on your computer. Cookies are used, for example, to count the total number of unique users who are accessing a website over a particular period of time, or to see which pages are most frequently viewed.
This is used so we can track the user from one page to the next but we are not capturing any details about the user. For example we might use this to keep a collapsible menu in the same state between page requests.
This is used when the user logs in. We place a cookie on their computer that exists for the duration of their browsing the site, and usually until the browser is closed, that indicates that this user is logged in. Without this cookie the user would have to re-enter their login credentials for every restricted page.
Third party cookies

Embed / iFrame content
Where content is embeded from external websites (e.g. in an iFrame, a video from YouTube), you may be presented with cookies from that website. You are therefore advised to check the relevant third party website for more information about those cookies.
