What technologies are used?
Type of technology Description
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Heathgate Search
features and functionality. Any browser visiting our sites may receive cookies
from us or cookies from third parties such as our customers, partners or
service providers. We or third parties may also place cookies in your browser
when you visit non-Heathgate Search sites that display ads or that host our
plugins or tags.
We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A
persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and is used for many
purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return
to Heathgate Search and interact with our Services without signing in again.
Since a persistent cookie stays in your browser, it will be read by Heathgate
Search when you return to one of our sites or visit a third party site that uses
our Services. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the
current visit to a website or a browser session).
A pixel is a tiny image that may be embedded within web pages and emails,
requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our servers in
order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use
pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web
content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also

Local storage enables a website or application to store information locally on
your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve the Heathgate Search
experience, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences
and speeding up site functionality.
We also use other tracking technologies, such as mobile advertising IDs and

customers. As described, you have choices regarding the use of your personal data for targeted
advertising. Some mobile device operating systems such as Android and iOS provide the
ability to control the use of mobile advertising IDs for ads personalisation. You can learn
