What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small text file, which is placed onto a User’s computer or electronic device when they access the Website. Similar technologies include web beacons, action tags, local shared objects (‘flash cookies’) and single-pixel gifs. Such technologies can be used to track Users, actions and activities, and to store information about them. Cosmodoggyland uses these cookies.
Types of Cookies
- Cosmodoggyland sometimes links to third parties. Third parties allow Cosmodoggyland to show Users external content on the Website.
In certain circumstances, Cosmodoggyland may also collect personal information about the User but only where the User voluntarily provides it (e.g. by completing an online form) or where the User purchases a Service from Cosmodoggyland.
Consent For Cookies
Users can choose to accept or decline cookies. Cosmodoggyland provides a tool that will ask their preferences when they visit the Website. Most web browsers automatically accept some cookies, but Users can usually modify their browser settings to decline cookies if they prefer. This may prevent Users from taking full advantage of the Website.
Withdrawal of Consent
If a User wants to remove previously set cookies, they can do so by clearing the cookies from their browser.
Third-party applications and services employ their own cookies as a result of the Website using their services. So, when a User subscribes to Cosmodoggyland’s newsletter or watches any of the videos on the Website, for example, they are accepting those cookies.
That doesn’t mean that other third parties aren’t planting cookies on their machine. If a User clicks a link on the Website that takes them to an outside site, that site may employ 3rd party cookies. The Website has no control over another site’s cookie usage.
Cosmodoggyland also uses social media buttons and plugins on the Website that allow Users to connect with their social network in various ways. For these to work, these social media sites will set cookies through the Website, which may be used to enhance their profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.
How do they work?
While social plugins appear on other websites, the information appearing in them comes directly from the social media site, so they’re just an extension of their social media site.
