Cookies Policy

Last updated: 17.06.20

This notice is intended to help you understand what cookies are, why and how we (How2-Change) use them and the choices you have about their use. 

By continuing to use our website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies in the manner described in this notice. Please also see our Privacy Policy.

What is a Cookie?

When you visit a website, small text files called cookies are stored on your computer. As well as helping to make websites work, cookies provide website owners with information about how people interact with their sites.

Cookies help us to make sure you get the best experience of our website. While we may use cookies to remember personal settings you’ve chosen while visiting the site, we don’t use them in any other way to collect personal information – and they are not able to detect any information stored on your device. Most of our cookies will be deleted automatically soon after you’ve left our site.

Are Cookies safe?

Yes. The information stored in cookies is safe and anonymous to any external third party, and your account security is never compromised.

What do we use Cookies for?

We typically use cookies to:

  • analyse our website traffic, giving us data that helps us to improve our site’s functionality and content
  • test our website content, for example by showing some visitors one type of content and others a different type
  • store information about your preferences, to help us provide you with content that’s more relevant to you
  • offer you the facility to share content and pages from our website through social media sites such as LinkedIn and Twitter. By using these features, you are consenting to allow cookies from these providers. More information about how these providers use cookies can be found on their individual websites.
  • recognise when you are signed in to and come back to our website. For example, when you return, we might provide functionality you’ve used before or show you relevant content.

Wherever possible, we use First Party cookies (these are placed there and used solely by How2-Change) however some partners such as Twitter use Third Party cookies to enable integration between our site and their platform.

The cookies we use fall into three broad types:

1) Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in helping you to move around our website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. These cookies do not gather information about you personally. 

2) Analytical/Performance Cookies

In order to optimise our website, we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use our site. For example, we can see which parts of the site are popular, identify when errors occur, and test new content. 

3) Functionality Cookies 

These cookies allow websites and applications to remember choices you make (such as your preferences, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised which means we can’t identify you personally.

Can I turn off Cookies?

Yes. To change your cookie settings, or if you want to be notified each time a cookie is about to be used, you should amend the settings provided in your web browser to prevent us from storing cookies on your computer hard drive.

For information on how to disable cookies, please consult the “Help” tab of your browser via the menu bar. You can set your browser to block some or all cookies from our website (and others too). Do bear in mind though that this might affect how our website and others function.

Website visitors who don’t want their data used by Google Analytics can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. To opt-out of Analytics for the web, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page and install the add-on for your browser. 

This Cookie Policy is regularly updated and changes to it will be communicated by updating this notice. Please see the top of the page for the last revised date. Please also read our Privacy Notice for more information on data and privacy.
