How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

How and why we use cookies

Everyone Health uses ‘analytics’ cookies to help us make our website better for those who visit it regularly. They help us work out what users like and don’t like, as well as ways we can improve the website and its content.

Cookies are used for a variety of other reasons, for example, to safeguard your privacy when browsing the site. Please note that our cookies do not store your personal information, such as your name, address, telephone or email.

 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to, and stored on, your computer, smartphone or other device for accessing the internet, whenever you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow us to offer a user experience on our website that is as smooth as possible. At Everyone Health, we mostly use analytics cookies to help us understand users’ behaviour on our website so that we can improve the online experience. Cookies can also be used, amongst other things, to remember preferences, let users navigate between pages efficiently, verify the user and for carrying out essential security checks. Some of the functions that cookies perform can also be achieved by using similar technologies. This policy refers to ‘cookies’ throughout. However, it also includes these similar technologies. These include Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects, also known as LSOs. Read more about them at allaboutcookies.org/privacy-concerns.

 

How to manage cookies

The browsers of most computers, smartphones, and other web-enabled devices will typically accept cookies.

However, please remember that cookies are often used to enable and improve certain functions on a website. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it is likely to affect how websites work. If you block cookies completely, many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all.

This is very important because any settings that you change in your browser will not just affect Everyone Health cookies, but will also apply to all websites that you visit (unless you choose to block cookies from particular sites).

Everyone Health does not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you, although we may combine information that we collect from the web analytics services we use and their cookies or similar technologies, such as LSOs to analyse how you, and other people, use our website.

Most modern browsers will allow you to:

  1. see the cookies that have been set and delete them on an individual basis
  2. block third-party cookies
  3. block cookies from particular sites
  4. block all cookies from being set
  5. delete all cookies when you close your browser

If you wish to amend your cookie preferences for this website or any other websites you can do this through your browser settings. Your browser’s ‘help’ function will tell you how to do this. When our website provides links to other websites, please bear in mind that third party websites will have their own privacy and cookie policies that will govern the use of any information you submit. We recommend you read their policies, as Everyone Health is not responsible or liable for their privacy practices.

 

Analytics Cookies

It is possible to opt out of having your anonymised browsing activity within websites recorded by analytics cookies. Everyone Health uses Google Analytics and you can opt out of their cookies by clicking on the following link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Please note, this will take you to the relevant third party’s website and generate a ‘no thanks’ cookie, which will stop any further cookies being set by third parties.

Don’t forget that, by not allowing analytics cookies, this stops us from being able to learn what people like or don’t like about our website. Your activity on the website would therefore not be taken into account when we look at ways to improve it.

 

Third party and flash cookies

The most common types of cookies are HTTP cookies. You can control these using the process described above, in the “How to manage cookies” section of this policy. As well as HTTP cookies, there are other technologies that work in a similar way to cookies called LSOs. Please note that, at the time of writing this policy, Everyone Health does not use any LSOs.
