This page provides details regarding the cookies we use across all OnMedica websites and what we use them for.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file that is saved by your browser when you visit a website. It enables certain information about your visit to be stored by the site.

Some of these cookies are essential in order for a website to run as you would expect it to while others allow us to provide you with a better service (for example, understanding what content is most popular, to provide you more of the same).

Our Cookie Policy

We understand you need to reach the most relevant information quickly and easily. So, our main aim of using cookies is to provide you with the most optimised 'user experience' possible.

We may use cookies to help you navigate the website efficiently and perform certain functions. For example, cookies allow us to remember your log in details to save you from having to type their username and password every time they visit us, or move from page to page.

Our website analytics tool also uses cookies in order to analyze how, when and where visitors use our websites, but this information is not tied to personally identifiable information. We only use this data to improve your experience. For example, we are able to find out what the most popular content is each week, and update our homepage to reflect that current interest.

After reviewing the cookies we use (see 'What cookies we use' section below) and the benefit they provide our visitors and members, we currently operate an 'implied consent' policy. This means that we assume you agree with the usage of our cookies. If you do not agree, we have provided guidance to help you to alter your browser settings to match the level of privacy you require (see the ‘Opting Out of Cookies’ and the ‘Managing and Deleting Cookies’ sections below).

Please note if your cookies aren't enabled on your computer, it will not be able to login to this website.

For more details about cookies, visit www.aboutcookies.org.

We will be reviewing our cookie policy in November 2012.
