Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser for a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy), your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies, you can still browse the Shire website anonymously until such time as you wish to accept cookies. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the services you have requested, and remove it when Shire no longer provides the service you have subscribed to. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
