Like most websites, the sbhscotland.org.uk and hydrocephalusscotland.org.uk sites use 'cookies' to help make them, and the way you use them, better. Cookies mean that a website will remember you. They’re small text files that sites transfer to your computer (or other device such as phone or tablet).
Some of these cookies are essential, while others help us to improve your experience by providing insights into how the site is being used.
Cookies may be served by us (first party cookies) or by third party’s through embedded content or features on our site (third party cookies). For instance if you watch a video on our site which is embedded from YouTube they will use their own cookies. We cannot control the settings of the third party cookies and we suggest you check any third party websites about their cookies and how they can be managed.
Cookies we use
Necessary cookies enable core functionality of the website. The website cannot function properly without these essential cookies, and they can only be disabled by changing your browser preferences.
These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you've been on the internet.
Functionality cookies don't collect things like your name or email address but they do collect a unique user identifier code/IP address. This enables us to identify your device so that we can improve your experience by remembering choices you make such as accessibility options.
Analytical cookies help us to improve our website by collecting and reporting information on how many people visit our sites and how users behave once they are there. The information is linked to your IP address and does not identify any information such as name or email address.

Targeting or Advertising Cookies
We use these to collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. As such if you have visited the SBH Scotland or Hydrocephalus Scotland websites you may then be more likely to see adverts about SBH Scotland’s services or events on other websites or social media as your browsing suggests that this is an area of interest to you.
Alternatively certain cookies may track that you have arrived at our site because of advertising we have placed on another site, allowing us to continue cost-effective advertising campaigns which in turn enable us to continue our charity's mission.
