Our use of cookies

We want to make the BIO-NMD website easy to use, reliable and most importantly relevant to you, our audience. To help us achieve this we sometimes have to place small amounts of information on your device, such as your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you by, for example:

  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how you use the website and if we can improve the layout, navigation or content in any area of the site

To help us achieve this we use Google Analytics as part of our site. Typically these cookies begin with:

  • _utma
  • _utmb
  • _utmc
  • _utmz

You are always in control of these files and can manage them yourself via the same web browser you are using to access this site. Please note: we do not use any cookies for any advertising-related or commercial purposes.

You can find out more information about the cookies on your machine here.
