What are cookies?
A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Those cookies are set by us and called first-party cookies. Websites can also use third-party cookies – which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting – for advertising and marketing efforts. Here are the most common types of Cookies you’ll encounter on the web:
Strictly necessary and site functionality cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be disabled. 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, adding products to your basket, 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.
These cookies allow a website to measure and analyse the number of visitors to our website and to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. Companies use this information to improve the way their website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
Targeting or advertising cookies
These cookies are usually set by 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.
Here at Pettable, we believe the shopping experience should be as snappy and efficient as possible – which is why we only set cookies that are strictly necessary for the functionality of our website. We do this because analytics cookies, although helpful, have a tendency to slow down page loading times for our customers – and we don’t like the sound of that!
By continuing to use our site, you agree to us placing functionality cookies on your computer or device and accessing them when you visit the site in the future.
