What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Chrome) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

How does the website use cookies?

A visit to a page on the website may generate the following types of cookie:

  • Anonymous analytics cookies
  • Registration cookies

Anonymous analytics cookies

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by Google Analytics generates an “anonymous analytics cookie”.

These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.

This allows us to keep track of browsing patterns and help us to build up a profile of how our readers use the website. Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used.

Registration cookies

When you register with Clinical Education Centre, we generate cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not.

Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service.

If you have not selected “keep me signed in”, your cookies get deleted when you either close your browser or shut down your computer. These cookies may retain your login information so that you can login automatically the next time you visit our site.
