Cookie Notice

This Cookie Policy applies to (“our website”) operated by W1 Anaesthesia of 4 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0PG, United Kingdom acting as the data controller.

This policy sits in line with the UK`s Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (“PECR”) and the EU`s counterpart the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (“PECD”).

What cookies are?
On this website we use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored in the memory of your device via your browser. Cookies store certain information (e.g., your preferred language or page settings) which can be sent back to us by your browser when you visit a website again (depending on the lifetime of the cookie).

Which cookies do we use?
We distinguish between two categories of cookies: 

Essential or Necessary cookies. These cookies are essential or necessary to ensure that a website works properly and is secure so that you can navigate a website and use its features. Without these cookies, certain features of a website would not function, and thus you would not be able to use certain services. 

Optional cookies. These cookies are non-essential for the website to function and require your consent. When it comes to optional cookies the following distinctions are made:

●    Functional cookies or sometimes called convenience cookies. These cookies allow a website to remember the options a user has made (including user ID`s stored, consents given, or languages selected) and other personalisation options you have selected when browsing.

●    Analysis and performance cookies, which are used to monitor and improve the function and service of a website. Those can track down problems when using a website, facilitate online surveys, record visitor numbers, and provide analytics metrics. 

●    Advertising cookies or targeting cookies. They are used to deliver customised advertising to the user. This can be very convenient, but also very irritating.

The PECR and PECD, require us to ask for your consent when using specific cookies (in particular any cookie that is not strictly necessary for the operation of the website, for example, Functional cookies, Analysis and performance cookies and Advertising cookies or targeting cookies “Optional cookies”). 

Further and as the UK`s Data Protection Act (”DPA”) and the EU`s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) also require a legal basis for the use of personal data in relation to cookies, the use of cookies would then be your consent as well as our legitimate interest. 

However, as we think it is important that you should have full control over your privacy online, we refrained from placing optional cookies on my website and as such we are not required to obtain any consents. Nonetheless, this may change, and we ask you to regularly check this policy for any updates. 

Changes and Updates 
We may update our Cookie Policy from time to time. This might be for a number of reasons, such as to reflect a change in the law or to accommodate a change in our business practices and the way we use cookies. We recommend that you check here periodically for any changes to our Cookie Policy. 

Validity and questions
This Cookie Policy was last updated on Friday, 5th of January, 2024, and is the current and valid version. However, we want to point out that from time to time due to actual or legal changes a revision to this policy may be necessary. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us using, call 020 7636 9155 or write to us at the above address.
