What Are Cookies and Why Do We Use Them?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your device the first time you visit a website. Cookies serve a variety of functions, and we use them to make our websites and/or services work (or to work more efficiently) as well as to provide reporting information. Cookies help us to do the following:
Remember your username and preferences.
Keep track of who is visiting our website.
Respond quickly to technical problems.
Analyze how well our website is performing.
Recommend content most likely to be relevant to you.
Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how you arrive at and use our websites, or your general location.
However, certain cookies may contain personal information, i.e. information which may in and of itself personally identify you, and we may link it to personal information that you provide. For example, if you click Remember Me when logging in, a cookie will store your username.
Information About Third-Party Cookies
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, iSmile Specialists )are called “first-party cookies." Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies.” Third-party cookies enable third-party features to be provided through the service you are using. For example, we use a web analytics tool called Google Analytics that helps us understand how visitors engage with our website.
These third-party cookies may therefore track your online behaviors over time and across non-affiliated websites. Third-party cookies may also deliver targeted advertisements either on our website or on other websites. We do not have control over the cookies used by these other third parties.
You have choices about the collection of information by third parties on our website. For example, if you do not want information about your visit to our website sent to Google Analytics, you may download a browser add-on to opt-out of cookies. Please note that the use of such add-ons does not prevent information from being sent to iSmile Specialists.
