Cookie Policy

On 26 May 2012 the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) imposed an EU directive designed to protect internet users’ privacy. The law says that sites must provide “clear and comprehensive” information about the use of cookies. In computing, cookies are small text files that help organise and store browsing information.

NHS Fylde and Wyre CCG’s website does not store or capture personal information, but merely logs the user’s IP address that is automatically recognised by the web server. We do not use cookies for collecting user information and we will not collect any information about you except that required for system administration of our web server.

This system will record your email address and other information if volunteered to us by you. This shall be treated as proprietary and confidential. It is assumed that by accessing this website you accept the way that we use cookies. However if you have any objections to the way this website functions in terms of its use of cookies, please contact us to register your concerns.


How We Use Cookies

Like many websites we use cookies to store and then retrieve small bits of information on your computer when you visit. This information is used to make the site work as you expect it to. It is not personally identifiable to you, but it can be used to give you a more personalised web experience.

Some of the information stored is put there by other companies whose software we have added to the site, and this can also impact your experience of other websites you may visit after leaving ours.

If you continue to use this site without taking action to prevent the storage of this information, you are effectively agreeing to this use.

If you want to learn more about the general uses of cookies, including how to stop them being stored by your computer, please visit Cookiepedia – all about cookies.

Below is a list of the different types of cookies used on this site, and an explanation of what they are used for. If you would like any more information, please get in touch.
