A. What are cookies?
Cookies are small files containing a string of characters that we may store on your computer or mobile device when you access the Website. When you access the Website again, the cookies allow us to recognise your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.
Cookies set by a website owner (in this case, Planet Medical) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third-party cookies enable us to provide third party features or functionality through the Website (i.e. advertising, social media functions and analytics).
B. The cookies we use
The information that we collect with cookies allows us to statistically analyse usage of the Website, and to improve and customise our content and other offerings. However, we only disclose information collected with cookies to third parties on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.

D. Web beacons
As well as cookies, we use other technologies to recognise and track your use of our Website. A web beacon (also known as a “tracking pixel” or “clear GIF”) is a clear graphic image (typically a one-pixel tag) that is delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail, typically in conjunction with a cookie.
Web beacons allows us, for example, to monitor how users move from one page within our websites to another, to track access to our communications, to understand whether users have come to our websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to measure how ads have been viewed and to improve site performance.
