What are cookies?
Cookies are simple text files that most websites store on your computer or mobile device when you access a site. Only the particular website server is able to retrieve or read the contents of the cookies it sets.
Cookies contain anonymous information and allow a website to remember things about your visit to the site, such as what brought you to the site, your preferences or what's in your shopping basket. Some are placed only for the particular session and 'self destruct' when you end the browser session, others stay on your PC for a set period (typically a few months, but it can be longer) even after you have logged off.
Yes, we do. We store two first party cookies on your computer - the first of which is known as a session cookie. This cookie is called 'usaynewhealth'. It stores absolutely no personal information about you and is used purely for analytical purposes so we can see what brought you to our website. The second first party cookie is called usaybusi_cookie and is used for analytical purposes for us to understand how you use our website.
We also use first party cookies for Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics tool which helps us see reports on how users are using our website and helps us deliver the best possible service by constantly improving our site. We also implement “Google Analytics Demographic and Interest” advertiser’s features.
Google Analytics collects information anonymously and it identifies trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our site. Visit the following Google page for more information:
How to remove cookies?
You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer, but be warned, your experience on the internet (not just our site) will be diminished by doing so. For example, websites will treat each visit as if you had never used the site before, so it won't save things like your user name, preferences or items in a shopping basket. If you would still like to remove cookies, we have a guide on our website here.
