When we deliver services and information through our website we want to make sure these are useful, reliable and easy to use.

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

  • enabling the website to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information multiple times during one task,
  • measuring how many people are using online services so we can make sure that there is enough capacity to make them work efficiently, and look at ways we can make them easier to use.
