Cookies 
A cookie is a small text file we pass to your computer's hard disk through your web browser so the website remembers who you are when you return. 
We use a type of cookie called a "persistent" cookie. These cookies store information between visits. For example, if you tick the 'Remember me' box your email address and password is saved in a cookie on your computer. This means next time you log on to the site you will not need to re enter those details.

If you do not wish to have cookies stored on your computer you can easily change your web browser to refuse cookies, or let you know when you get a new cookie.

In this case the information is kept to a minimum. No one from The MSE Charity will directly contact and communicate with anyone under the age of 18. All contact will be through their appointed sponsor. If personal information given via our website shows a visitor is a child, we will not allow the child to continue to give personal information and any personal information given will be deleted from our records.
