This policy explains what cookies are, how The Cosmetic Skin Clinic uses them on our websites and what you can do to manage how they are used.

Our cookies help us:

  • Make our website work as you’d expect.

Should you wish to remove or not use cookies from our site you can learn how to do this below, however doing so will likely mean that our site will not work as you would expect.

How long do cookies last?

When a web server sends a cookie, it asks your browser to keep that particular cookie until a certain date and time. These dates can be:

  • Some date in the future – which might be a few minutes or a few hours from now (to track something like your shopping cart in an online store). The cookie might expire many years in the future, to keep track of your browser for a long time.
  • When you close your browser – this is called a session cookie, the next time you start your browser these will have vanished.
  • Some date in the past – this is how the server asks a browser to remove a previously-stored cookie.

Our own cookies

We use cookies to make our website work including:

  • Remembering if you have accepted our terms and conditions.
  • Allowing you to add comments to our site.
  • Remembering if we have already asked you certain questions (e.g. you declined to use our app or take our survey).
  • There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.
