What happens if I say 'no' to allowing cookies in my browser? Will the site still work?

The website will still work and you will be able to get the information you need from the site. But as we develop how the site works and offer more sophisticated services through it this will most likely rely on cookies. For example if we begin to tailor the content to your interests as expressed by your browsing behaviour this depends on cookies. If you have declined cookies then this kind of service will not be available to you.

What is the impact for alliancepharma.co.uk?

If you decline cookies then we will not be able to count your site usage in the statistics that we gather about use of the site. We use Google Analytics to count the number of people who use the site and to analyse how they use it. We do this to make sure that our sites are as good as they can be and this is the primary evidence we use when trying to improve what we offer to users.

If you decline cookies then your site usage won't be counted and measured in this way so we won't be able to take your actions into account when analysing data and seeking to improve our service based on that analysis.
