  2. Each website can send its own cookies to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
  3. Many sites save cookies whenever a user visits their website in order to:
        • Provide website personalisation (for example: saving preferences such as font size, accessibility features, template versions etc.)
        • Save data or user’s decisions (for example: removing the need to enter login and password on every website, remembering a login during for the next visit, keeping information on products added to a shopping cart)
        • Provide social media integration (for example: displaying your friends, fans or post publishing on Facebook directly from the website)
        • Adjust adverts that are displayed on the website and make the 'more relevant' to the person viewing them
        • Create website and flow statistics between different websites to track online traffic flows
  4. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided and you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the features of websites. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
  5. In the UK, website users must be given the option to agree to accept the use of cookies.

Our company


Consultant addressing a meeting round a conference table

Our company was formed in 2013, with a mission to:

  • provide no nonsense, affordable information governance and other forms of business and technology consultancy and support
  • focus on the UK health sector, public sector, charities and their business partners
  • fill information governance skills gaps
  • raise privacy, cyber security and data protection awareness, skills and standards

Information Governance

Under this heading, our main focus is providing consultancy, training and associated services to healthcare organisations and more particularly their private sector partners in England. We can act as an external Data Protection Officer service and are expert in providing customised documents covering all aspects of data management and compliance.

Exigia calls on the services of highly experienced ex NHS staff with many years of front line experience in the field to assist its clients in completing the NHS Data Security & Protection Toolkit and IGSoC applications. We also work with our clients to help them develop good policies, procedures and practices for Information Governance and Cyber Security.

Web development and other services

We have always conducted the majority of our business online and have developed websites and applications to support this. So, although our main focus is Information Governance, we also provide a variety of other IT and business related services for SME clients in multiple industry sectors and, in particular, we offer Web Services.

We have strengths in web design, development and hosting. We can rapidly deploy solutions and set up new web presences from scratch; often within 48 hours from receipt of a firm order. When developing websites, we pay particular care to ensure that we follow good privacy and web accessibility (WCAG) standards; aspects that we know are particularly important to public sector bodies. Our sites are also designed to be responsive; working well not just on PCs, but also on tablets and other mobile devices.

We are registered with the Information Commissioner and take data protection very seriously.
