We also offer a 'share page' widget on some of our web pages, where content can be shared easily on Facebook and Twitter.  These sites may set a cookie when you are logged into their service.  The Australian Red Cross Blood Service has no control or liability over these cookies set, so you should check the relevant third party's cookie policy for more information.
