What are Cookies
(And How to Change Them)
Cookies are small text files that are stored by your web browser on your computer.
We use one essential cookies to help work out what your last page was and what we need to present the current page, and to maintain data between pages.
The other two essential cookies we set are related to authentication, and to allow us to remember any form data that is not sensitive between screens while logging on and the other authentication token is a JSON Web Token to authenticate you against our Open ID Connect platform. Without this cookie OIDC does not work, and you would be unable to log in.
We don't store a large amount of data on your computer:
- Our primary essential cookie stores 27 bytes on information on your computer.
- The second two authenitication related cookies are 49 and 602>1024 bytes long respectively.
The larger cookie is information relating to our Public Keying System we operate to ensure our website is secure.
The second two cookies only appear (or are set) until you try to logon, or are logged in.
You are welcome to delete all cookies from us at any time, but if you are logged in when you clear them, you will be asked to log in again, and they will reappear.
