Cookie Policy

We use cookies, pixels and tags (which we shall collectively define as “Cookies”) on the Medmonks website for a variety of purposes which are described in this Cookie Policy. By using the Medmonks website you consent to the storing and accessing of Cookies on your device in accordance with the terms of this Cookie Policy.

IP Addresses and Cookies

Like almost all commercial websites, Medmonks records statistical data and uses Cookies to improve site performance. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by that browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. We may send one or more cookies which may be stored by your browser on your computer. The information we obtain from cookies is part of the Collected Information. Our advertisers and service providers may also send you cookies. Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one. To improve our services and this site, we may retain third party service providers to operate this site and help us monitor, collect and analyze information regarding your interactions with this website and the data you input, including the use of such providers’ cookies on your computer.

Statistical data:

The Medmonks site logs certain statistical data such as; IP address, the type of operating systems used and browser types used. This statistical data is not connected to personal information and so user information is anonymous. For example, if we know that a growing number of users have a new type of browser we know that it’s a good idea to test new pages and features in that browser.
