Cookie Policy

We want our Website to be easy to use, useful and reliable. To do this, we need to place small amounts of information on your device, known as cookies.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file downloaded with a web page. It is used to pass information between the user (the person looking at the website) and the server (the computer running and managing the website). Most websites use cookies.

Why are cookies used?

Cookies allow a website to recognise a user's device. This means that if you look at the site on your phone and then on your laptop you may count as two different visitors. Sometimes the information is needed for a particular part of a website to work properly.

So-called 'third party' cookies often include information about which adverts you have been shown.

On the AHC Website we use cookies for the following reasons:

How can I check whether I have accepted cookies on this Website?

How do I change my cookie settings?

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by our Website, or indeed any other website, you can do this through your browser settings. The ‘Help’ function within your browser, or the developer’s website should tell you how. See also ‘Where can I get more information about cookies?’ below.

Can I view my cookies?

If you wish to view your cookie code, just click on a cookie to open it. You'll see a short string of text and numbers. The numbers are your identification card, which can only be seen by the server that gave you the cookie.
