How We Use Cookies

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or device when you visit a website. Cookies are used by the majority of sites, and have several different functions. At a basic level cookies will:

  • Allow the site to work properly, and help keep it secure.
  • Help to understand how people use a website.
  • Make a site easier to use by remembering information that you've entered.
  • Improve your experience by showing you information that's relevant to you.

How NIR-Online uses cookies

NIR-Online will:

  • Remember your login details (if you ask us to)
  • Make sure your NIR-Online session is secure
  • Record NIR-Online pages accessed during your visit and the capability of your web browser

NIR-Online will not:

  • Store your login password
  • Store any personally identifiable information related to you

The types of cookies we use

These are divided into three categories:

Session cookies: These cookies let you move around the site and use all of the website features. Without them, you wouldn't be able to log into NIR-Online or use any of its applications. These cookies also help keep your NIR-Online session secure.

Analytic cookies: These simply help us record details about your site visit, such as pages visited and browser used.

Persistent cookies: These cookies store your NIR-Online login details (except your password), so next time you visit the information is already there for you. This only happens if you request it.


By using our website, you're consenting to our use of cookies. You can change your cookie settings at any time through your browser.

Changing your cookie settings

We recommend that you don't change your cookie settings, as we can't guarantee the performance of the site if you block some or all cookies. If you do decide to change them, you can do this through your browser. Each browser works in a different way, so you'll need to search for 'cookie settings' in your browser's help section to find out how to do this.

Third Party Cookies

The only third party cookie NIR-Online uses is a Google Analytics Cookie (see Analytic cookie above). NIR-Online uses no other third party cookies and no advertising cookies of any sort.
