Cookie information

Cookies are small text files stored on your computer. We use cookies to improve the content and design of our website and give you a better user experience. 

Google Analytics is an analytics product that CNWL uses to do things such as keep track of the number of visitors to the site and the length of their stay. When you visit our website, Google Analytics will deposit the cookies on your computer to enable us to obtain this information.

The metrics obtained through the use of first-party Google Analytics cookies do not include any information that would allow CNWL to  identify visitors individually to the website; the data is anonymous. The anonymised data that is collected is stored on Google's servers.

The Google Analytics data sharing policy offers CNWL the option to share analytics data either 'Anonymously with Google and others' or with 'Google products only'. UK government websites that use Google Analytics have been advised not to select either of these options. CNWL has chosen not to share the analytics data in either of these ways.
