The Poodle website and webshop require cookies in order to function properly. Cookies help us to analyze and improve our website, but also support core functionality in order to give you the best possible experience on our site.
Cookies are very small (4Kb) text files that are placed on your computer or device by websites that you visit. Cookies allow a website to ‘remember’ you either for the duration of your visit – session cookies – or between visits – persistent cookies. Cookies, therefore, can expire at the end of session or can persist for days, months or even years. The persistence of a cookie is under the control of the website that sets it.
Cookies can be used for many purposes but typically are used to remember who you are between pages on a website or for storing your preferences and generally improving your experience of a website.
Cookies can be set by the website you are visiting – first party cookies – or by other websites that are using another website to host content – third-party cookies. If a website embedded, say, a YouTube video, YouTube may well set a cookie when the video is viewed, this would be a ‘third-party’ cookie.
Most web browsers allow at least a degree of control over cookies through their settings. You can opt to receive an alert whenever a cookie is set or even to disallow the setting of cookies altogether. You can also delete all existing cookies.
For information about how to manage or delete cookies for you particular browser, please refer to the browser’s documentation, Alternatively, you can visit aboutcookies.org, which has comprehensive information on how to manage cookies on a wide variety of desktop browsers.p
