ftmg Associates Ltd ("us", "we", or "our") uses cookies on our KNEEguru website whose digital address is https://www.kneeguru.co.uk (the "Service"). By using the Service, you consent to the use of cookies.

Our Cookies Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how third-parties we may partner with may use cookies on the Service, your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies.

What are Cookies?

'Cookies' are small bits of information that we place in your computer's browser or temporarily in your computer's memory to store your user names, passwords and other preferences, so that you are recognised when you revisit so you don't have to log in every time you visit our website. We also use cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our sites.

Cookies help us to be more efficient. We can learn about what content is important to you and what is not. We can revise or remove web pages that are not of interest and focus our energies on content you want. A cookie is like an identification card. It is unique to your computer and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. Although you may set your web browser to refuse cookies, you may find that some parts of the site will not function properly after you have refused cookies - for example this will prevent your active participation on the Forum as your password will not work.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. If you want to control which cookies you accept, you can configure your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered by a website's server. You can set your browser option so that you will not receive cookies and you can also delete existing cookies from your browser. Please be aware that if you do not configure your browser you will accept cookies provided by this website. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Service's features.

Essential cookies

We may use essential cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. 

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Session cookies

Many of the cookies we use are session cookies. Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. These facilitate various tasks such as allowing a website to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality.

Persistent cookies

We also use persistent cookies. They last beyond your session and after you’ve closed your browser. We use them to ensure you have a better experience when you return to the site. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you choose to remove them.
