How we use your information

Cookies

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you. This is either for the duration of your visit (a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do many things: storing your preferences or by generally improving your user experience on a website by enabling you to navigate between pages more efficiently. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – so, if you were to enter your login details and then move to another page, it cannot recognise you and it will not be able to keep you logged in.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based on your location and/or browsing habits. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

The CMW Wellbeing website uses cookies to enhance your user experience.

What is in a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.
