Hook Dental - Cookies Policy
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Service or a third-party to recognise you and make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you.
When you use and access the Service, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser.
Cookies can be "persistent" or "session" cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are deleted when you shut down your Web browser or turn off your computer. These are used to improve how you navigate through a website and, for example, to keep track of your shopping basket contents.
‘Persistent’ cookies remain on your computer until manually deleted or when they reach an expiry date. They hold information that is useful if you revisit the website, such as login details and customising your personal preferences.
You can disable cookies already stored on your computer, but this may stop our website and others from functioning properly. It may also cause saved login details, for example, to be deleted, so ensure you have a note of them before deleting all cookies.
We use both ‘session’ and ‘persistent’ cookies on the Service and we use different types of cookies to run the Service:
- Essential cookies. We may use essential cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts.
- Non-essential cookies. The following are not strictly necessary but are required to provide you with the best user experience and tell us, anonymously, which pages people find most interesting.
o Functional Cookies. Typically used for Live Chat support (if available) and for tracking the pages you visit. Page tracking data is collated by Google on behalf of millions of website owners, providing anonymous data on which pages you visited, how you got there, the page you exited the website from and so on. It allows us to see which pages are more or less popular and helps us to make our website even better.
o Targeting Cookies. These allow you, for example, to share pages with social networks such as Facebook.
Your choices regarding cookies
You can opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites. Search on ‘Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on’ for the web browser plug-in.
Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or refuse to accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
