Our goal is always to ensure our site is easy and reliable to use - and this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example computer or mobile phone.
These small files are known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
The cookies we place on your device are used by other websites to track when users visit their services via Carers.org.
Cookies are small text files stored by your web browser (for example, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Firefox) on your computer, tablet or mobile phone to enable functionality on a website.
The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables a web server to identify and track web browsers. There are two main kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach their expiry date.
It is easy to manage your cookies by adjusting your browser settings but this will impact your user experience. The Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you can visit www.aboutcookies.org.uk which provides directions on how to block cookies on all major browsers. This site also explains how you can delete cookies that have already been stored on your computer as well as general information about cookies.
