'Help us improve GOV.UK Registers' questions

When accessing a register's data you’ll be asked a couple of questions about what you're using GOV.UK Registers for. Once you’ve filled these in or chosen to skip them, we'll store a cookie so that your computer knows you’ve seen it and knows not to show it again.
