How we collect this data


A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time. Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to decline them and can delete them whenever they like. Cookies do not personally identify you, but do identify your browser.

This website uses cookies for security purposes and to help analyse which elements of this website are most used to help determine the effectiveness of our content and how we might improve it in future. It also means if you complete a form on this website, it might remember what information you have entered. This is to save you re-entering the same details again.

The cookies on this website do not read the information on your hard drive. They do not make your computer perform any actions or make your computer send information to any other computer via the internet. Central Coast Health Promotion Service makes no attempt to associate cookies with users’ names or identities. Our server cannot find out your name or email address, or anything about your computer, by using cookies.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties, where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
