Danshell Learning Disability and Autism Services 

Danshell supports and cares for adults living with a learning disability, who may also have a diagnosis of autism, in specialist supported living, residential services and hospitals. Our aim is to deliver effective and outcome based services within person centred, professional care environments, supporting people to have the most choice and independence possible. We set high standards for ourselves in the delivery of care, and most importantly, we put the people we support at the heart of everything we do.

Website Cookie Policy

This policy applies on and from 25 May 2018.

Whenever you use our danshell.co.uk website or mobile site, information may be collected through the use of cookies.

By using our website or mobile site, you agree to our use of cookies as described in this Cookie Policy.

IP Addresses and Cookies

For system administration, we may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type. This statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns does not identify any single person use.

Cookie files, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer, may be used to obtain information about your general activity on our site. These contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive and help us improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They can enable us to:

  • Make an estimate of our audience size and usage pattern
  • Store information about users' preferences, allowing us to customise the site more according to a user's individual interests.
  • Enhance the speed of searches
  • Recognise a return visitor to the site

It is possible to reject cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. If the setting is selected you may not be able to access certain parts of our site. Unless the browser setting is adjusted to refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to the site.

What are ‘Cookies’?

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) then sends these cookies back to the website or application on each subsequent visit so that they can recognise you and remember things like personalised details or user preferences.

Cookies are very useful and do lots of different jobs, which help to make your experience on websites as smooth as possible. For example, they let you move between web pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience (see below for more examples). They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

They are referred to as session or persistent cookies, depending on how long they are used:

  • Session cookies only last for your online session and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.
  • Persistent cookies stay on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last for the period of time specified in the cookie. These persistent cookies are activated each time you visit the site where the cookie was generated.

How to Control Your Cookies

There are various ways that you can control and manage your cookies which are discussed in a bit more detail below. Please remember that any settings you change will not just affect Danshell website’s cookies. These changes will apply to all websites that you visit (unless you choose to block cookies from particular sites). The settings you change will also only apply to the device on which you change them and will not apply across all your devices. If you want to opt out of cookies on all your devices, you will need to change the settings on all your devices individually.

Managing Cookies in your Browser

Most modern browsers will allow you to:

  • See what cookies you've got and delete them on an individual basis
  • Block third party cookies
  • Block all cookies from being set
  • Delete all cookies when you close your browser

You should be aware that any preferences will be lost if you delete all cookies. Ironically, this includes where you have opted-out from cookies, as this requires an opt-out cookie to be set. This means that if you opt out from cookies and then delete all cookies, your opt-out will not be saved and you will need to opt out again (which will store a strictly necessary cookie so that your device can remember that you have opted out).

If you block cookies completely, many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all. We do not recommend turning cookies off when visiting our website for these reasons.
