Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
Cookies allow the website to recognise your device (your computer or mobile phone) if you return and can make using the website faster and easier.
Cookies are used minimally on this website for site usage analytics. You may delete and block all cookies from this site, but some parts of the site may not work as expected.
In order to help us to improve the content, format and structure of this website we record and analyse how visitors use the website. For this purpose, we use Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is an analytics product that West London NHS Trust 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 WLT 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 WLT 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. WLT has chosen not to share the analytics data in either of these ways.
Full details on the cookies set by Google Analytics are published on the Google website. Google also publishes a browser add-on to allow you to choose that that information about your website visit is not sent to Google Analytics.
We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source.
If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this and we will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
