Bridge Clinic Limited Cookies Notice
1. What is a Cookie?
2. Are cookies safe?
Cookies are safe for your devices. They only store information used by your browser. They can’t access any other content on your device, nor do they create malware or viruses.
3. Are there different types of cookies?
Cookies fall into two main categories:
(a) Session cookies: These cookies last for the duration of your visit to a website. They delete themselves when you close your browser.
(b) Persistent cookies: These cookies stay on your device when you close your browser.
Cookies are further broken down into four main types of cookies depending on their purpose:
(a) Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are required for the operation of our website. Our website cannot function properly without these cookies. We only use strictly necessary cookies for their essential purposes unless you have given us consent to any other uses that they may have.
(b) Functionality cookies: These cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences.
(c) Analytical or performance cookies: We use these cookies to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that our users are finding what they are looking for easily.
(d) Targeting cookies: We use these cookies to record your visit to our website and the pages you have visited. We use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose (i.e., third parties that assist with our advertising).
We use third parties when providing you with our website which may set cookies on your browser. These third parties may include, for example, providers of external services like web traffic analysis services. These third-party cookies are likely to be analytical cookies or performance cookies or targeting cookies. If you do not feel comfortable, you can individually block these cookies in the cookie settings on our website or you can block them in general by changing the settings on your browser (so that it blocks all of these types of cookies).
5. Would a cookie on my browser be considered to be my personal data?
Cookies cannot be used alone to identify individuals. However, they may be linked directly or indirectly to an individual when combined with other information, such as their name, held by the online provider or a third party and considered to be personal data. This means that there is a possibility that we may be able to identify you as an individual and would have your personal data in our systems.
We believe in the importance of data privacy and treat your personal data with the utmost of care. If you would like to find out more about how Bridge Clinic Limited handles personal data, please review our Privacy Notice which can be found here.
6. What if I share my device with other people?
If more than one person uses your device, the choices set by others will apply to you as well unless you specifically change them when you are using your device. For example, if you share a computer with your family or friends, you may see adverts based on websites they have visited as well as websites you have visited.
7. What happens if I change or turn off one or more types of cookies in my browser?
You can visit the “options” or “preferences” menu or your browser to change your settings. You may find it useful to review the following useful websites which give you advice based on the browser you’re using:
- Cookie settings in Chrome
- Cookie settings in Safari for Mac and iOS
- Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
- Cookie settings in Firefox
We are not responsible for the information on any of the websites above.
You can also choose to entirely turn off or delete cookies in your browser. If you do this, it may affect websites that use similar cookies to us. This is because the cookies choices you set in your browser replace any cookies choices you set on a single website.
8. What are the consequences of refusing cookies?
If you use your browser setting to block all cookies (including strictly necessary and therefore essential cookies) in general or those specifically on our website, you may not be able to access all or parts of our website and subsequently enjoy all the functionality available.
9. Do we use any other similar technologies to cookies?
In addition to the cookies on this website, we use technologies such as pixel tags in some emails and push notifications which enable us to understand whether you have opened the email and how you have interacted with it.
10. Who should I contact if I have any questions?
This Cookies Notice is kept under regular review and was last updated in March 2023.
