When you visit any web site, it may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They 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. This information might be about you, your preferences, your device and does not usually identify you directly.
The tables below explain the cookies Blue Smile uses and why.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like e-billing, cannot be provided.
We do not ask for your permission to set these cookies as we believe that it is in Blue Smile’s legitimate interests to set essential cookies and we do not believe that this affects your privacy rights; however, you can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies; if you do, please remember that some parts of our site may not work.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you personally. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how our website works.
We will ask for your consent to set these. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not.
These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Targeting cookies (or advertising cookies)
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with Blue Smile’s permission. They remember that you have visited our website and this information is shared with other organisations (such as advertisers), so that you may see adverts relating Blue Smile’s work on other websites you visit.
We will ask for your consent to set these cookies. If you do not allow these cookies, you will not experience our targeted advertising across different websites.
