SHAARE Cookie Policy

This website aims to be simple, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on users' devices, for example, computers or mobile phones. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to personally identify a user.

These pieces of information are used to improve services, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise a user's device so they do not have to give the same information during one task
  • recognising that a user has already given a username and password so they do not need to enter it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast
