Cookies and Google Analytics Policy

            Most online services today use Cookies to store and collect information. My Mental Health Project strives to be honest and transparent with you at all times. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them).

            We use two broad categories of Cookies: (1) first-party Cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which are used only by us to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits the My Mental Health Project’s service; and (2) third-party Cookies, which are served by service providers on the My Mental Health Project’s service, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites.

            My Mental Health Project uses Cookies to verify that you are properly signed in and to display information for your primary location or language. Please be aware that a Cookie cannot spread computer viruses, retrieve any other data from your hard drive, or capture your email address.

Cookies we use:

           The My Mental Health Project’s system uses the following types of Cookies for the purposes set out below.

a. Essential Cookies.  These Cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our services and to enable you to use some of its features. For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our application and help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these Cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these Cookies to provide you with those services.

b. Functionality Cookies. These Cookies allow our system to remember choices you make when you use our services, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of services which you can customize. The purpose of these Cookies is to provide you with a personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our services.

c. Analytics and Performance Cookies. These Cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our website/application and how users use our services. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and anonymous. It includes the number of visitors to our services, the websites that referred them to our services, the pages they visited on our services, what time of day they visited our services, whether they have visited our services before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate our services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our services.

            We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. They are only used to improve how our services work.

            When you sign up to a user account, we also present you an opt-in acceptance to our Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy. You are not able to create a user account if you do not accept them as they are essential for the provision of our services after you create a user account.
