What are cookies?
Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to the devices you use to access CIT’s online information. Your browser makes these cookies available every time you visit the website again, so it can recognise you and can then tailor what you see on your device.
Here are some examples of essential cookies:
- Positioning information on a smartphone screen, tablet or other screen, so you can see the website and use its functionality.
- Keeping you logged in during your visit or enabling you to stream content; without cookies you might have to log in on every website you visit or repeatedly adjust your volume and viewing settings
Analytics cookies are used to gather this information. The information collected is grouped with the information from everyone else’s cookies. We can then see the overall patterns of usage rather than any one person’s activity. These ‘analytics’ cookies are used to improve how an application, a website and its pages work.
