COOKIES POLICY – WWW.LEDAMEDICAL.COM

This cookies policy (the “Cookies Policy”) describes the way in which Leda Medical P.C., uses cookies and other technologies to store or access information on the device that you use to access the www.LEDAMEDICAL.COM website (the “Site”).

We may revise this policy from time to time and will post any changes on this web page. You should check this page from time to time to keep up-to-date with any such changes, as the changes will apply to any visits you make to the Site after the change.

WHAT ARE COOKIES AND PIXEL COOKIES?

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on the hard drive of the device you use to access a website, so that the website can remember and identify your device. They contain anonymous information and will typically include the name of the site from which the cookie has come; how long the cookie will last; and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.  For example, they enable a website to identify that, when you move from one page to another, you are not a new user and so do not need to log on again.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing based, for example, on your location or browsing habits.

Cookies can be set by the owner of the website itself (“first party cookies“) or by other websites that provide content (such as advertising) for the website that you are viewing (“third party cookies“).

PIXEL COOKIES

Some of the Site’s pages may contain electronic images known as “pixel cookies” (sometimes known as clear gifs, or web beacons) that allow us to count users who have visited these pages. Pixel cookies collect only limited information from your device, which includes a cookie number; time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the pixel cookie resides.

These pixel cookies do not carry any personally identifiable information and are only used to track use of the Site or particular pages on it. Pixel cookies are not stored on your device and do not place any information on your device.

Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They allow our web servers to respond to your actions on the Site and while browsing it.  The Site will not work for you without these cookies.

Analytical/performance cookies. These allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors to the site, and to see how visitors arrive at our website move around our website when they are using it.

Some cookies used on the Site are temporary and remain on your device until you leave the Site, at which point they are deleted. These are often called “session” cookies. Session cookies are typically used on the Site to allow you to carry information across pages of the Site and avoid having to re-enter information, and to allow you to access stored information whilst you are logged into a user account on the Site.

Other cookies used on the Site remain on your device once you have left the Site (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These are often called “persistent cookies”.
