What sort of cookies does East Barnet Vets website use?
Personally identifiable information such as visitor's name, telephone number, postal address and email address are technically impossible for StatCounter to collect and no attempt is made to do so. The information that is recorded consists of the date and time of visit, ip address, browser (e.g. Firefox 3.5), operating system version (e.g. Windows XP), screen resolution (e.g. 800x600), referring link, the current page url and the current page title.
To enable StatCounter.com to track whether a visitor has been to a website before (i.e. a first-time or returning visitor) we send a cookie to the visitors' computer. This information is collected solely for statistical purposes and is not used to identify individuals.
In recent years, web search giants such as Google and Microsoft have been encouraging website developers to encrypt all data transmitted between website’s host servers and end user browser windows. The East Barnet Vets website is encrypted using Everweb Site Shield which provides secure online end to end encrypted data transmission. Data encryption is important as it provides a safe, secure way for transmitting data across the internet to all the devices a website visitor may be using.
