Collection of Data through 'Cookies'

PDSA uses resident cookies to store data on the hard disk of your computer for the purpose of identifying you when you return to the PDSA website. If you have resident cookies disabled in your browser, you are still able to use the PDSA website. PDSA uses sessions to store data on our server, which are individually identifiable. This means that a session cookie will be stored on your machine, and will expire once your visit to the PDSA website has ended. Functionality of the PDSA website depends upon your browser accepting session cookies. PDSA tracks visitors to and on the PDSA website by using referrer tracking. PDSA uses click through and open mail tracking when sending emails. This process gives PDSA the ability to tailor future email communications.

In addition to our own cookies, we also use third party cookies for the purpose of analytical reporting, display re-marketing and to build a profile of our website visitors. Digital Re-Marketing is a feature of Google services that lets PDSA reach people who have previously visited our website. PDSA digital adverts may be shown to people when they visit other websites in the Google Display Network or when they search on Google using PDSA or pet-related keywords.

Re-marketing is a feature that helps match interested people with the right message.
Even if people leave our site without making a purchase, re-marketing lets us reach out to these potential supporters when they search on Google using pet-related keywords or visit similar websites. We can show an advert that encourages them to return to our website.
