Cookie Policy

The Bay Vet Group website uses cookies. This allows us to gather information about your use of our website such as your IP address, connection speed, operating system and the duration of your visit. This helps us to provide you with a better experience by tailoring our website according to your level of interest in the content. We will not attempt to identify you from your IP address unless required to by law or to protect our rights or those of our customers. Most browsers will automatically accept cookies. You can adjust your browser settings to disable the use of cookies, and you can also delete existing cookies from your browser. Each browser is different so you will need to check how to change cookie preferences on your specific browser. However, some parts of our website will not function properly if you disable our cookies because we can only provide you with certain features of the website by using them.

Here’s a list of the cookies we use and why.

Category 1 – Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like our online shop cannot be provided.

Category 2 – Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how this website works.

Category 3 – Functionality cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Category 4 – Targeting and advertising cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.  Currently we do not use these cookies for advertising but Facebook, Google and others may use cookies to improve user experience on our website.
