What are cookies?


Cookies are pieces of computer code that allow small amounts of information to be passed from your internet browser to our web server. They allow websites to recognise your PC, mobile, tablet or other device as you browse. For more detailed information about how cookies work, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org

Why do we use cookies on Cookson Dental?

Cookies serve many functions. Some examples are that they allow us remember whether you are logged in to the site, to remember what items you had in your shopping basket and to serve content tailored specifically for you. Cookies are used with our marketing partners to present you with appropriate offers and advertising as you browse other sites on the internet, based on the products you looked at while on our site. Cookies also allow us to work alongside our web analytics partner, Google Analytics, to see how you like to use our websites, which pages or special functions you prefer and help us to make them better. This helps us to continually improve our service.

What cookies do Cookson Dental use?

We may use the following types of cookies during your visit on Cookson Dental:


Strictly Necessary
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.


Performance Cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.


Functional Cookies

These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.


Targeting Cookies

These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.


Social Cookies

These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit.

Manage your cookies

To make it easier for you to understand the way a website uses cookies, we have grouped them into easy to understand categories. The information is provided to you in an open and transparent way, so that you can see how cookies are used to improve your experience.

However, if you wish to control and remove cookies, this can be done via settings in your web browser.

Note that in common with most other transactional websites, refusing cookies via your web browser will mean that you are unable to make a transactional purchase on Cookson Dental. Plus many of the interactive functions offered on Cookson Dental are dependent on cookies so by disabling or blocking cookies can prevent these services from working or reduce their usefulness.
