The World Hepatitis Alliance uses ‘cookies’ to give you a more personalised web service.

A cookie is a small text file we pass to your computer’s hard disk through your web browser so the website remembers who you are when you return.

If you do not want to have cookies stored on your computer you can easily change your web browser to refuse cookies, or let you know when you get a new cookie.

Web Security

In order to prevent unauthorised access and protect our users’ personal information, the World Hepatitis Alliance strives to maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to secure the information they collect online. Notwithstanding their efforts to protect your information, no security system is completely impenetrable, and as such the World Hepatitis Alliance cannot guarantee the absolute security of their databases, nor can they guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while in transit over the internet.
