What are Cookies and Why do Websites Use Them?
Cookies are pieces of information that are used to improve services for you through, for example:
Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally on the SANE website.
The SANE Support Forum uses software called PhpBB. When a person in the SANE Community uses the Support Forum the programme sets two cookies which are for login and authentication purposes only, plus a third "session ID" cookie which contains a session identifier, so the cookie itself doesn't contain personal information.
The SANE website only sets a PHP session ID cookie, and that session is only used to store login/authentication data and some details temporarily when a service user performs a search of the site.
We also use Google Analytics software to help us improve the useabilty of the website. The type of information gathered relates solely to the amount of time spent on the website and which pages were visited. No personal information is held.

Each person that uses the SANE website gives their agreement and consent for SANE to use the cookies mentioned above so that SANE can deliver free and effective emotional support and supporter services.
