1. DEFINITION – WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small files that hold information which are stored on your computer or device when you visit a website or use an app, sometimes with unique identifiers. This information can be retrieved by the website that placed them there or accessed by websites or apps that have been authorised by the site that placed them there.

The term ‘cookie’ within this policy document includes similar technology (including web beacons and log files).

2. TYPE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED

We collect cookies to help us tailor your online experience and to better understand how customers are using our website. Cookies do not read data from your hard drive and you can delete them from your computer at any time. You can change your cookie preferences by clicking the cookie icon on the bottom left of your screen at any time.

Here are some examples of how we use the information we collect:

  • To make our website work – for example, by keeping it secure
  • To remember which pop-ups you’ve seen
  • To measure how you use our website, such as which links you click on (analytics cookies)
  • To help show you relevant health campaigns on social media

Please note that we do not receive your name or e-mail address through cookies.

3. TYPES OF COOKIES

The cookies we use can be grouped into four separate categories:

  • Essential
  • Marketing
  • Personalisation
  • Analytics

Essential

These items are required to enable basic website functionality, for example allowing you to be remembered as you explore the site in a single session. They assist with security issues and conforming to regulations.

Marketing

These items are used to deliver advertising that is more relevant to you and your interests. They may also be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Advertising networks usually place them with the website operator’s permission.

Personalisation

These items allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your username, language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For example, a website may provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing data about your current location.

Analytics

These items help the website operator understand how its website performs, how visitors interact with the site, and whether there may be technical issues. This storage type usually doesn’t collect information that identifies a visitor.

We may from time to time add new services using cookies to our website. We aim to keep cookie information provided as accurate as possible. However, some services, particularly social networks, change their cookies regularly. We recommend if you are wanting the most up to date information on our cookies that you contact us through: [email protected]  

Please note, these cookies may be split into two types:

Session cookies

Session cookies are created temporarily when a user visits a website. Once the user closes the browser, the session cookie is deleted.

Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies remain on the user’s device and it re-activates when the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. You can remove these cookies manually.

Your first visit to this website will generate a pop-up header alerting you to cookies and will re-appear only in the event that you change your cookie settings from time to time.

Please also note you can control your cookies manually if you so desire.

For more information on how we collect your data please see our privacy policy.
