Cookies

Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information.  When you visit our website, we may collect information from you automatically through cookies or similar technology.

Cookies and Web Beacons

We may use cookies, web beacons, tracking pixels, and other tracking technologies on the Site to help customise the Site and improve your experience.  When you access the Site, your personal information is not collected through the use of tracking technology.  Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default.  You can remove or reject cookies, but please be aware that such action could affect the availability and functionality of the Site.  You may not decline web beacons.  However, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or by modifying your web browser’s settings to notify you each time a cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.

Internet-Based Advertising

Additionally, we may use third-party software to deliver advertisements on the Site, implement email marketing campaigns, and manage other interactive marketing initiatives.  This third-party software may use cookies or similar tracking technology to help manage and optimise your online experience with us.

Website Analytics

We may also partner with selected third-party vendors to allow tracking technologies and remarketing services on the Site through the use of first party cookies and third party cookie, to, among other things, analyse the track users’ use of the Site, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity.  By accessing the Site, you consent to the collection and use of your information by these third-party vendors. You are encouraged to review their privacy policy and contact them directly for any responses to your questions.  We do not transfer personal information to these third-party vendors.  However, if you do not want any information to be collected and used by tracking technologies, you can visit the third-party vendor.

My Eye Health uses cookies in a range of ways to improve your experience on our website, including:

. Keeping you signed in

. Understanding how you use our website.

What types of Cookies do we use?

There are a number of different types of cookies, however, our website uses:

. Functionality- My Eye Health uses these cookies so that we recognise you on our website and remember your previously selected preferences.  These could include what language you prefer and location you are in.  A mix of first-party and third-party cookies are used.

. Advertising- My Eye Health uses these cookies to collect information about your visit to our website, the content you viewed, the links you followed and information about your browser, device and your IP address.  My Eye Health sometimes shares some limited aspects of this data with third parties for advertising purposes.  We may also share online data collected through cookies with our advertising partners.  This means that when you visit another website, you may be shown advertising based on your browsing patterns on our website.

. Persistent– This helps us recognise you as an existing user, so it is easier to return to the Site or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by My Eye Health when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services.

. Session– Session cookies only last for as long as the session.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

A DNT feature or setting can be activated to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognising and implementing DNT signals has been finalised. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online.  If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of the Privacy Policy.
