A cookie is a means for your web page browser to hold a small amount of information either in memory or on your hard disk for use during your website visit. It is important to stress that cookies do not damage your computer, since they cannot look into your computer and find out information about you or read any personal material kept on your hard drive.

There are two types of cookies - 'session' cookies and 'persistent' cookies. Session cookies disappear after you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies are stored for a length of time on your hard disk after which they 'expire' automatically.

Like most other major websites, the Merseyside Network for Change website uses cookies, some persistent, some session. However, we use them only with our 'interactive' pages, such as form-filling pages, when it is necessary to maintain a unique 'id' on your browser whilst you use those pages.

Any Merseyside Network for Change cookies that are used or that remain on your PC do not contain any record of the information you may enter, nor any other personal information, and are only used so that interactive sessions function correctly. No other website can read the 'id' we store in our cookies and we do not read any information from other websites.

Most browsers will allow you to refuse cookies on your machine. However, you will not be able to use our interactive pages if you do this.

If you visit other websites from links within the Merseyside Network for Change website you might encounter the use of cookies on those sites. This is beyond the control of Merseyside Network for Change.


Access to all our user information is restricted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

The servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment which is continually monitored and tested.
