What are cookies?

A cookie is a piece of text that is stored on your computer by your web browser. We use cookies to monitor how patients, customers and trial sites use our site. This helps us to understand how the site is used so we can develop and improve their design, layout and make more relevant content.

How they work

If a site uses cookies, the first time you visit that site, it will create cookies on your computer. The next time you visit that site, the site will check if you have any cookies it knows about on your computer. If any relevant cookies are found they are read and the information contained in them sent back to the site. Cookies come from yourtreatmentchoices.com itself and from other 3rd party sections or graphics that make up a webpage.

Why should you allow cookies to be used?

By using cookies, YourTreatmentChoices.com 'knows' that you have been on the site before. This is useful as we can see what regular visitors to the site are doing and what single use visitors are doing. This helps us see what works and what doesn't, and generally improve the functionality of the site.

We also use cookies so that we know when you are signed in, who you are and other sign in details. This does not include your account password. We also use cookies to record what the last condition was that you searched for and where.

YourTreatmentChoices.com does not use cookies to target advertising based upon your browsing history. We cannot be held responsible for any cookies created by 3rd party plugins such as Facebook or Twitter.

The YourTreatmentChoices.com website has limited functionality if its cookies are blocked. You will not be able to sign in to the site, and therefore will be unable to answer matching questions, connect with our screening nurses or any trial sites.
