Website: Privacy & Data Use
This policy describes the different types of cookies we use and how you can manage your cookie preferences.
There are two types of cookies:
Session cookies - these are temporary and are erased when you close your browser at the end of your surfing session. The next time you visit the site it will not recognise you and will treat you as a completely new visitor as there is nothing in your browser to let the site know that you have visited before.
Persistent cookies - these remain on your hard drive until you erase them, or they expire. How long a cookie remains on your browser depends on how long the website has programmed the cookie to last, i.e., the duration period.
For further information about what cookies are, we recommend you visit www.dataprotection.ie for more detailed guidance.
How to Manage your Cookie Preferences
When you first visited this web site, we asked you to provide us with your Cookie preferences. You can change these preferences at any time by simply clicking on the following link: Cookies Settings
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. 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, 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 us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our 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.
Cookies set by Third Party Websites
We sometimes embed video content from websites such as YouTube. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. Equipetstores.com does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third-party website for more information about these.
Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g., order confirmation emails. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site – e.g., our monthly promotion newsletter. Some emails we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked, then you should opt out of Equipetstores.com emails which you can do via the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the footer of every promotional email we send.
