COOKIES AND HOW THEY BENEFIT YOU

The Take Part platform and Application Website use cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience possible. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile phone when you browse websites. Your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome or Firefox) then sends these cookies back to the website or app each time you visit so that the website or app can remember personalised details or your user preferences. That way they help make your experience of the Take Part platform and Application Website better.  

Our cookies help us to:

  • make the Application Website work as intended by us;
  • save you having to login every time you visit the Application Website;
  • improve the speed/security of the Application Website;
  • continuously improve the Application Website for you; and
  • determine if you are logged in to the Application Website or not.

Cookies come in two forms: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies only last for the time you are browsing the website or application and then they vanish when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device after you close the browser and are activated each time you visit the website or app you got the cookie from.
