To give you the best possible experience, this site uses cookies. Using acupuncture.org.uk means you agree to our use of cookies.

Information about our cookies

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to 'remember' you, either for the duration of your visit - using a 'session cookie' - or for repeat visits - using a 'persistent cookie'.

On the BAcC public website we use a session cookie. The main use for this is in maintaining your result set in 'Find a practitioner' searches

We also use a 'third party cookie' - Google analytics - to help us generate statistics about the site usage. This service is provided by Google Inc.

On the member website we use a session cookie for the forum, and a persistent cookie to enable users to stay logged in.

What is in a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information, such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. On the web server we use the unique identifier to map through to information relevant to you, for instance to enable you to return to your search results from a practitioner's details view.

What to do if you don't want cookies to be set

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless, you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

If you don't want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies that are set on your device, you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.
