How cookies are used on this site

FoodChain ID strives to provide services that are 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”. Please note – we do not use these to identify you personally, or to hold any personal data.

These pieces of information are used to improve your website experience and the services we deliver to you, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognize your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
  • recognizing that you may already have provided a username and password so that you don’t need to keep repeating these for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services so they can be improved and there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast

You can easily manage these small files yourself if you know how. You can find guidance on managing cookies on this website.
