Health Navigator Charitable Trust Cookie Policy

By using any Health Navigator Charitable Trust website, mobile website, or mobile application, you confirm that you agree to the use of cookies and similar technologies in accordance with this cookie policy.

This cookie policy provides information about the cookies and similar technologies used on our websites. This cookie policy should be read in conjunction with the Health Navigator Charitable Trust privacy statement.

What are cookies?

A ‘cookie’ is a small text file that can be placed on your computer, mobile, or other device when browsing a website. Two kinds of cookies are used on our websites: session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies allow users to be recognised within a website. They are deleted automatically when you leave a website or close your browser.

Persistent cookies are used to help us identify users when they return to our websites and help us remember certain information about customer preferences on our websites and customer online activity.

Both session cookies and persistent cookies help us understand browsing behavior within our websites, which can assist us in customising content that we believe will be most relevant to your interests. Persistent cookies are stored on the user's computer or device and are not deleted when the browser is closed – these cookies must be ‘manually’ deleted if you want to remove them.

First and third party cookies

Health Navigator Charitable Trust sets cookies (first party cookies) on web pages; however, where we require additional information and services, we also allow other companies to host cookies on our web pages (third party cookies). These partner companies have been carefully selected by Health Navigator Charitable Trust and are monitored by us.

Third party cookies that our partners set on our websites will support the analysis of user behaviour so we can improve our online services.

What does Health Navigator Charitable Trust use cookies for?

Health Navigator Charitable Trust uses cookies and similar technologies for the following key purposes:

  • To operate our websites efficiently with a high level of functionality.
  • To measure the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives.
  • To learn about customer preferences so that we can present customers with web content and advertising that is relevant to them.
  • To measure the number of advertising referrals we have received to our websites from other websites.
  • To produce data on web traffic and customer web activity through our website.
The cookies used by Health Navigator Charitable Trust are categorised into four groups (specified in the International Chamber of Commerce UK Cookie Guide published in April 2012): strictly necessary, performance/tracking, functionality, and advertising/targeting.
