What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small file of data which our website places on your computer’s hard drive. The cookie helps us look at web traffic or lets us know when you visit a particular website.
Cookies allow websites to respond to you as an individual and let us tailor our website to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about you.
There are 2 types of cookies:
- Persistent cookies allow a website to recognise users when they return to a site and keep certain information on user preferences. These cookies stay on a computer until they are deleted by the user.
- Session cookies allow a website to carry over information from one page to another so that a user does not have to re-enter information. These cookies delete themselves at the end of the session or at a certain time.
What cookies do we use?
We use Google Analytics (Read more here) and also a website system called WordPress which only sets cookies in case where you are given login details and need to access a user account. Currently this level of access is only given to our Psychiatrists.
