1. WHAT ARE COOKIES

Cookies are small pieces of data stored in text files which are downloaded to your device when websites are loaded in your browser. They are widely used as they allow websites to recognise their users’ devices and preferences.

Cookies aid in various functions such as allowing you to efficiently navigate between pages, storing your preferences, personalising content, and improving your online user experience.

There are four different categories of cookies which include:

Session and persistent cookies:

  • Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that are used during the course of your visit through the Petiboo website, and they expire when you close the web browser; and
  • Persistent cookies: these are used to remember your preferences within the Petiboo website and remain on your device even after you close your browser or restart your computer.

First and third-party cookies:

  • First-party cookies: these cookies are set and controlled by Petiboo, and not by any external organisation; and
