Here we detail which cookies we use, and what we use them for. These policies relate to all the content on the Being Well In Suffolk site and on the family of BWIS sites. Please take some time to read through them. However, in short we don't use the cookies to gain any information about you or pass on any information to anyone else.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard disk of the user and are used to allow a webpage to store information about the users session. They are a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user's browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past).
If you wish to know more, wikipedia has a good article explaining their usage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie
On all BWIS domains, the only cookies we use allow for site 'usability' and site monitoring and statistics. The full list is below. Most of the cookies are set by the forum software we use (PHPBB) and Google Analytics. Google Analytics data is anonymised so we can't track users, we only use it to monitor and improve our website
Only one cookie is set by the site, and that is used to store the site session information (logging on and off). We transfer no information to third parties
You can adjust the settings on your computer to decline any cookies if you wish. This can easily be done by activating the reject cookies setting on your computer.
