Privacy and Cookies

The CuPiD project website does not capture or store personal information, but merely logs the user's IP address which is automatically recognised by the web server. This is used to record the number of visitors to our site.

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. Our cookies cannot be used to identify you personally.

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

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so that you do not have to give the same information several times during one task
  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so that you do not need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so that they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure that they are fast

Our use of cookies

Google Analytics sets cookies to help us accurately estimate the number of visitors to the website and volumes of usage. This to ensure that the service is available when you want it and fast.
