To fully understand the implications of this you need to be aware that when we refer to ‘the site’ this includes all of the websites operated by the London Ambulance Service UNISON Branch. Some parts of our website are in fact stand alone websites of their own such as our news pages and blogs. Turning cookies off would therefore be likely to affect different parts of our site in different ways.

Visitor Statistics Cookies
Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.
You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com . You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn’t as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.
With the exception of a few select UNISON affiliated adverts, the only section of our website that actively uses advertising banner ads is the LASUNISON.NET e-mail service. This is a free service provided to our members and activists and in order to keep it free we do allow advertising on the site. In order to avoid this then we advise you do not use this part of our website.
We fund our LASUNISON.NET e-mail site by showing adverts as you browse the site. These adverts are usually managed by a partner specialising in providing adverts for multiple sites. Invariably these partners place cookies to collect anonymous data about the websites you visits so they can personalise the adverts to you, ensure that you don’t see the same adverts too frequently and ultimately report to advertisers on which adverts are working. Our partners include:
Turning Cookies Off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites
It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
