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