More about our cookies
We have set out below the cookies used on our website. Not all of these cookies are used on every page, and many are only used when delivering content via third parties.
Our own cookies
- Determining if you are logged in or not.
- Determining the format in which to display content to you.
Third party functions
- Engaging Networks (policies) - We sometimes embed petition or contact forms from Engaging Networks, a service that supports our campaigning work.
Disabling these cookies may break the functions offered by these third parties.
Social website cookies
So you can easily "Like" or share our content on the likes of Facebook and Twitter we have included sharing buttons on our site.
Cookies are set by:
- AddThis (privacy and data practices) - delivering the sharing functionality.
- Facebook (data use policy) - for the "Like" button.
We also use a Twitter box on our homepage.
Some social websites will have information available to them if you have provided it elsewhere. For example, if you allow Facebook to share your data with other websites, your visit may be notified to Facebook if we have a ‘Like’ box on a page (we do not currently use these). The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.
Anonymous visitor statistics cookies
We also use Remarketing with Google Analytics to better target our online advertising. Find out how this works.
Turning cookies off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (learn how to turn cookies off here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our websites, and a large proportion of other websites, as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
You can opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting. Find out more at www.aboutads.info/choices. Google Analytics also offers a browser add-on to block to opt out of their service.
To exclude cookies from a specific source, reference the relevant domain from this list in your browser's cookie settings:

.leonardcheshire.org or other Leonard Cheshire website domain

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called ‘spyware’. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser, you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
