Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent from our web server to your browser. It is stored on your hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites, and will not damage your system.

You can reset your browser to refuse cookies or alert you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept cookies, some features of this site might not work as intended (e.g. services accessed while logged in, and all transaction/checkout facilities). We do not use cookies to identify you personally, except when you opt to use the ‘Remember me’ facility on logging in.

What type of cookies do we use and when?

There are two broad classes of cookie: session and permanent.

Session cookies are used to keep track of information needed by a user and their browser on their journey through a website. Session cookies have a short lifetime and expire within a few minutes of the user leaving the site. MyDentalUniform uses session cookies to keep you logged in for the duration of your visit, to enable you to complete transactions on this website and, for example, to pre-populate forms with information to save you keying in data that you have already provided.

MyDentalUniform uses permanent cookies to record what you have added to your basket and to enable basic web traffic analysis using Google Analytics and IBM Coremetrics. We also use permanent cookies to ‘remember you’ when you return, but only if you have ticked the ‘Remember me’ facility on logging in.

E-mail communications

MyDentalUniform uses cookies in its e-mail communications to personalise the e-mail and track whether that communication has been opened and read, and whether the recipient has used the onward links contained in the e-mail. This allows us to monitor and improve our e-mail communications.

What we do not use cookies for

MyDentalUniform cookies do not analyse visits to other website.
