Your Right to Refuse to Accept Cookies

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our site.

What Happens If You Refuse to Accept Cookies

The website will still work and you will be able to get the information you need from the site, however as we develop the site 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 will depend on cookies. If you have declined cookies then this kind of service will not be available to you.

The Impact for enact.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 our website.

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 use of our website will not be counted and measured in this way so we will not be able to take your actions into account when analysing data and seeking to improve our service based on that analysis.
