Technical and Statistical Data
Due to the nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee the protection of your personal data and therefore we are not responsible for any loss or damage resulting to you when the website is used. You should be aware that each time you visit a website, two general levels of information about your visit can be retained. The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the website and the second is information which is personal or particular to a specific visitor who knowingly chooses to provide that information.
The statistical and analytical information provides us with a general and non-individual specific information about the number of people who visit this website; the number of people who return to the website; the pages that they visit; and where they were before they came to the website and the page in the website at which they exited. This information helps us monitor traffic on a website so that we can manage the website's capacity and efficiency. This type of non-personal information and data can be collected through the standard operation for internet servers and logs as well as "cookies" and other technical mechanisms.
IP Addresses and Cookies
The Dentists-near-me.co.uk site logs certain statistical data, such as IP address, the type of operating systems used and browser types used. This statistical data is not connected to personal information, and so user information is anonymous. For example, if we know that a growing number of users have a new type of browser, we know that it's a good idea to test new pages and features in that browser.
What are cookies?
What kind of Cookies do we use?
We use our own Cookies (first party Cookies), that help deliver our site features. Some Cookies (third party cookies) are placed by advertising networks and services such as Google with our permission. These include Cookies related to Google Analytics (which helps us to improve our site performance and usability) and Google Adsense (which help deliver advertising that is more relevant to you and your interests, and limit the number of times you see an advertisement).
How long do they last?
Cookies generally have a 'lifespan' and after that period they expire. Some expire as soon as you log off, and some last for weeks or longer. Cookies on our site are renewed when you visit or log in and usually expire after 7 to 30 days of inactivity.
Switching off cookies:
Most web browsers automatically accept Cookies. Your browser should tell you how to turn off the automatic acceptance of Cookies if you look through settings. This will almost certainly create issues when using the dentists-near-me.co.uk site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse all Cookies, our system will issue Cookies when you log on to our site. If you are concerned with 3rd party Cookies (other than our own) there is excellent advice available here: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/
