What Data We Collect

We try to collect as little information as possible about the visitors of our website (PetBlog.org) in order to protect everyone's privacy.

Below we'll try to explain to you in easy-to-understand words what type of data we collect, why, and how this information might be used.

Browser Cookies

It's very likely that you have heard about the term "browser cookies" before.

In simple words, a cookie is a small piece of text that is saved by your web browser once you access our website or the majority of the websites on the World Wide Web. 

The cookies help us to give our visitors a unique and customized user experience, help us better analyze and understand our traffic and our visitors’ needs. Using cookies, our website can tailor its operations to your needs, likes, and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Most modern web browsers also give you the possibility of browsing in a private/incognito mode. This environment prevents browsing history from being stored on your computer and saves the website's cookies in a temporary folder, which is erased after you close the web browser.

Therefore, if you fear for your online privacy, you can access our website in private/incognito mode.

Our website also allows you to choose whether to accept or reject several cookie groups. You can do that from the cookie notification bar that appears at the bottom of every page before you give your cookie consent.

In order to better understand the purpose of each group, we have listed these below.
