Practice Privacy Policy

Llynyfran Surgery is committed to maintaining the on-line privacy of its existing and future clients. We use the information we collect from you to both help us understand more about how our site is used and can be improved, and to be able to send you further information about our activities that may be of interest to you.

EU Cookie Law

Since 26th May 2012, all UK websites need to comply with the EU E-Privacy Directive 2009/136/EC. Cookies are only a small part of this directive, and whilst you are still allowed to use cookies on a website, it must be made clear to visitors to your site that cookies are being used.  On first arrival at our site, there is a message to warn you that the website makes use of cookies.

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, sent to the browser of your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) from a website’s computer. It is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, and not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits them to track online traffic flows.

This website uses cookies to monitor site performance and for functionality only.

How to Delete Cookies or Control Them

If you wish to restrict or block cookies set by this or any other website, you can do this through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how.  Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact on the functionality of this website.
