Under the UK Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations of 2012 sweetharmonypetservices.co.uk is required to make available information about all cookies we use on our web site.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files placed on your computer's hard drive; they help websites to analyse web traffic or recognise your computer and remember you’ve visited before. Cookies contain information about your computer, but they do not include personal information such as your name or address details.
Cookies we use
The information gathered by Google Analytics helps us to improve our site and tailor it to our website users needs.
Google servers automatically record the page requests made when you visit our site. These “server logs” typically include your web request, Internet Protocol address*, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes, we cannot recognise you from the records we hold and cannot access your computer or any information about you. You can find out more about the tool we use for this and how it works on the Google Analytics website.
Finally, our ‘Cookie Consent’ widget that shows at the bottom of a page until you click on ‘I understand’ uses a Cookie.
How long will cookies stay on my computer or mobile device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted.
Google Analytics and the Cookie Consent widget both use persistent cookies in order to remember your visit (or more accurately, your IP address visit).
Accept or decline cookies by adjusting your browser settings
If you are concerned about cookies from this or any other website you may want to adjust the privacy settings in your internet browser. By doing this you can withdraw your consent for websites to upload cookies to your computer.
Most internet browsers automatically accept (or 'consent' to) cookies, but you can usually change your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. This may reduce your browsing experience but it gives you greater control over the cookies that are placed on your computer.
Here are some links to point you towards advice for the most popular internet browsers:
