Visitors should be aware that each time they visit a website two general levels of information about their visit can be retained. The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the site, and the second is information that is personal or particular to a specific visitor who knowingly chooses to provide that information. It is policy of this website to respect and protect the privacy of our Customers and never wilfully disclose individually identifiable information about its Customers to any third party without first receiving that Customer's permission.
We may, however, occasionally email you with information or queries about your registration or accounts, for instance to request permissions or advise you of changes.
No personally identifiable information is collected about you on this website, apart from information which you volunteer (for example by emailing us, using our online forms or by making an inquiry about content or services).
Throughout this website you may have an opportunity to send us information relating to you such as through the "Contact Us" pages. By choosing to participate in these, you will be providing us with some level of personal information relating to you. This information will only be used by WoC for:

Cookies we use
There are two types of cookie you may encounter when using this site;
FIRST PARTY COOKIES: these are our own cookies, controlled by us and used to provide information about usage of our site.
The following is a listing of the main cookies used on our site together with brief details of the information they store and for what purpose;
Site performance cookies: This type of cookie remembers your preferences/settings for tools found on a WoC site or Empeal-Health-App.
Analytics cookies: Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. Unless you are signed in to a WoC site or mobile app, these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as username and email address.
Registration cookies: When you register with a WoC site or mobile-app, we generate cookies that signal whether you are signed in or not. Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post with your username.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES: these are cookies found in other companies’ internet tools which we are using to enhance our site, for example Facebook or Twitter, have their own cookies, which are controlled by them.
If you would like to disable "third party" cookies generated by advertisers or providers of targeted advertising services, you can turn them off by going to the third party's website and getting them to generate a one-time "no thanks" cookie that will stop any further cookies being written to your machine.
