You can think of cookie as providing ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

How We Use Cookies

At Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector we use cookies for:-

  • Analytical data – measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
  • Preventing fraudulent activity
  • Improving security – recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested

Third-Party Cookies

In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-parties cookies to report usage statistics of the Service.
