Google Tag Manager and third party tracking
We work with advertising partners and social media websites including Facebook (Connect and Custom Audiences) and Google (Adwords, Doubleclick and Dynamic Retargeting) who may set cookies on your device when you visit our website to show you products and services based on what you are interested in.
If you would like to opt-out of tracking for advertising purposes, you can do so using the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out or Your Online Choices. However neither of these services can ensure that you do not receive any internet advertising based on your browsing activity.
As at the date of this policy, there is no uniform standard for Do Not Track (DNT), a feature offered by some browsers which tells third parties that you do not want to be tracked. Until such time as a standard has been established, this website does not respond to DNT requests.
Email marketing tracking
We use Mailchimp to deliver our newsletter to subscribers. The Rocket Science Group LLC which operates Mailchimp has self-certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.
Emails sent to you from Mailchimp include a tiny invisible graphic, or web beacon, which is downloaded from Mailchimp’s server when you open an email to tell us that you have opened our emails. If your email account is set to view emails in plain text or not display images, this image will not be stored. Where we include any includes in our emails, Mailchimp also adds a tracking reference to the end of each link to tell us that you clicked on it.
Our eye health consultations are among the most comprehensive in the industry and can determine not only visual disorders but also the early presence of certain diseases. Click here to find out more.
