This website makes use of both session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies are short-lived, are used only during a browsing session, and expire when you quit your browser. A session cookie is used during normal navigation of the CMS-A website and when you access dynamic content such as forms and restricted content. The session cookie may only identify you if you have been granted log-in access to the site and you are logged in.
Persistent cookies are stored on your computer, contain an expiration date, and may be used to track your browsing behaviour. If you customise your visit by selecting a CMS branch a persistent cookie is used so that on subsequent visits you can access branch details without having to re-select your branch. This cookie does not identify you.
If you make a donation via the online facility your personal details such as name, address and credit card details will be requested. Financial information is only used to process your donation - this is done using Securepay, a PCI compliant internet merchant facility. CMS and the server host never receive your financial data except for the notification and receipt of payment.
