Session cookies are temporary cookies that are not stored on your computer or mobile device. They are used as part of the login, authentication and session management flows of the Best Practice Healthcare platform websites. Certain session cookies are also used to understand, for example, if a user interacting with our company website is a new visitor or a visitor returning as part of the same browsing session. These session cookies are erased when you close your browser, or after extended inactivity.
Persistent cookies are those placed on your computer or mobile device for a pre-determined length of time when you visit this site. They are used on both the Best Practice Healthcare platform and company websites, including, for example, to understand (through Google Analytics or Squarespace services) what areas of our websites and platform are most popular, and how customers and users engage with them.
Other tracking technologies
Other tracking technologies are used on Best Practice Healthcare’s company website and platform sites. These are primarily used to understand if customers or users are interacting with any marketing-type emails sent from our systems. Examples include:
Flash Locally Stored Objects (eg ‘Flash’ cookies) – these follow the same principle as normal standard cookies in that they allow information to be stored on a user’s machine.
Transparent GIF or web beacons- these mechanisms can be used to deliver a cookie to your browser. They can also be used in email marketing to identify to the sender if an email has been opened.
