What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that can be stored on and accessed from your device when you visit a website. They may include a unique identifier that distinguishes your computer or mobile device from other devices. In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies to track your use of the Pawland Sites, such as pixel tags and web beacons. Web beacons are electronic images that are contained within a website. When your browser opens a webpage that contains a web beacon, it automatically connects to the web server that hosts the image (typically hosted by a third-party). This allows that web server to log information about your device and to set and read its own cookies. We also include web beacons in our promotional email messages or newsletters to tell us if you open and act on them.
Cookies can be “persistent cookies” that remain on your hard drive until they expire or are deleted, or “session cookies” that are deleted from your hard drive when you close your browser. Cookies can also be “first-party cookies” which are set by us, or “third-party cookies” which are set by others.
For further information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage or delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

How can I manage or delete cookies?
The following are examples of how you can manage or delete many of the cookies served through the Pawland Sites:
- Cookie opt-out links. You may manage or opt-out of certain uses of many cookies served through the Pawland Sites by using the links provided above.
- Industry opt-out sites. You may also opt-out of some uses of Advertising cookies by visiting:
- Browser settings. Many web browsers accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually change your browser’s settings to reject and/or to remove many cookies. On some browsers, you can choose to let the Pawland Sites place cookies, but choose to reject cookies from certain third parties (such as analytics companies or advertising companies). As the precise means by which you may do this will vary from browser to browser, please visit your browser’s help or settings menu for more information.
Please note also that if you choose to reject or remove cookies, this may prevent certain features or services of Pawland Sites from working properly. Since your cookie opt-out preferences are also stored in a cookie in your website browser, please also note that if you delete all cookies, use a different browser, or buy a new computer, you will need to renew your opt-out choices.
Pawland may also use e-mail tracking technologies to monitor the success of email campaigns it operates (for example, recording how many emails in a campaign were opened). If you do not want us to track emails we send you, some email services let you change your display to turn off HTML or disable download of images and exercising these rights should effectively disable our email tracking. In addition, you may also unsubscribe from our marketing emails as described in those emails.
Mobile Advertising ID Controls
The iOS and Android operating systems provide options to limit tracking and/or reset device advertising IDs. Please consult the settings on your device to exercise this choice.
Do Not Track
Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. The Pawland Sites do not currently process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals. Instead, you can use a range of other tools to control data collection and use, including the cookie controls and advertising controls described above. To learn more about “Do Not Track”, please visit “All About Do Not Track”.
In addition to “Do Not Track”, there are many ways that web browser signals and similar mechanisms can indicate your tracking choices, and we may not be aware of nor honor every mechanism.
