Our Cookies Policy
A cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded on to a device (like your computer or smart phone) when you accesses certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Some cookies help websites to remember choices you make (e.g. which language you prefer if you use the Google Translate feature). Analytical cookies are to help us measure the number of visitors to a website. The two types we use are ‘Session’ and ‘Persistent’ cookies. Some cookies are temporary and disappear when you close your web browser, others may remain on your computer for a set period of time.
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
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.
(2) About cookies:
Cookies are files, often including unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
(3) This Cookies Policy:
(4) Cookies on this Website:
We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on this website.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:
(1) set your preferred colour scheme for this website;
(2) to enable the captcha security image to work on various on-line forms;
(4) Enables the 'Auto-complete' feature on our Repeat Prescriptions ordering application to remember the details from your last visit;
(6) Third Party Cookies:
This website does not send third-party cookies.
(7) Blocking Cookies:
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. For example:
(1) in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector;
(2) in Firefox you can block all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”, and un-checking “Accept cookies from sites” in the “Privacy” box.
Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites. If you block cookies, you will not be able to use the 'Auto-Complete' Repeat Prescriptions feature on this website.
(8) Deleting Cookies:
You can also delete cookies already stored on your computer:
(1) in Internet Explorer, you must manually delete cookie files;
(2) in Firefox, you can delete cookies by, first ensuring that cookies are to be deleted when you “clear private data” (this setting can be changed by clicking “Tools”, “Options” and “Settings” in the “Private Data” box) and then clicking “Clear private data” in the “Tools” menu.
Obviously, doing this may have a negative impact on the usability of many websites.

A cookie is a small piece of information sent from a web-site to your computer where it is stored on your hard drive. Most web-sites send cookies of some description. Most browsers will allow you to disable cookies; you will still be able to move around the site as normal if you do decide to disable cookies.
A cookie is a small file which 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 you 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.
(5) What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views and website navigation);
(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, see Online Applications & Comments / Suggestions form below;
(d) information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters;
(e) any other information that you choose to send to us;
(6) Using your Personal Information:
We may use your personal information to:
(a) administer the website;
(b) enable your use of the services available on the website;
(c) send transaction confirmations by email;
(d) send you general (non-marketing) communications;
(e) send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;
(f) send to you our newsletter, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require these communications);
(g) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website;
We do not pass any of your personal information to outside organisations and/or individuals, except with your express consent.
In addition, we may disclose your personal information:
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
(d) to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
(8) Security of your Personal Information:
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password and firewall protected) servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us will be encrypted using SSL technology (excluding our Comments & Suggestions and PPG Application to join forms).
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
(9) Online Applications:
This refers to the following Online Applications:
Health Questionnaire, Travel Risk Assessments, Smoking Status, Blood Pressure Charts and Contact by Email.
The Internet is not a secure medium. While your information will be processed in strict confidence within our practice, we cannot guarantee its security over the Internet. However, we have taken a number of steps to help ensure the data you send to us is secure:
- We only request your Patient Number or part of your first-name, part of your surname and your date of birth to identify you.
- We use an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) link so that the data you enter is encrypted when sent over the communications link.
- As soon as we receive your data we delete it from our online server, so your data only remains on the Internet for a short period of time.
These measures ensure the applications are more secure than sending 'free text' emails. However, we do not guarantee or warrant these applications in any way. You are in no obligation to use the applications. If you do not wish to use these applications, please use one of our alternatives (eg paper copies of forms & questionnaires, telephone, fax, post or in person visits to the surgery).
(10) Comments & Suggestions Form:
This form sends a non-secure free-text email to us and should therefore not be used for any confidential purpose. It has a similar security level as sending an unsecured email message from your email application (e.g. Outlook Express).
We have provided a box in reception for paper based Comments & Suggestions. This is provided as an alternative to using the online version.
(11) Patient Participation Group Joining & Contact Form:
This form sends a non-secure free-text email to us. It has a similar security level as sending an unsecured email message from your email application (e.g. Outlook Express).
If you do not wish to use this form please apply to join the group in writing to our Practice Manager.
(12) Policy Amendments:
(13) Your Rights:
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to:
(a) the payment of a fee (currently fixed at £10.00); and
(b) the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).
We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.
You may instruct us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes by email at any time. In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.
(14) Third Party Websites:
The website contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party websites.
(15) Updating Information:
Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
