About cookies

Cookies are pieces of information sent by a web server to a web client (usually a browser), stored by the client, and then sent back by the client each time it accesses that server.

Cookies (name-value pairs) can contain information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, identifiers for sessions, etc.


Cookies are subject to a number of misconceptions, perhaps based on the incorrect notion that they are computer programs that run on a user’s computer. In fact, cookies are simply pieces of text data that are intended to direct the operation of a web server, not the client. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. In particular, cookies are neither spyware nor viruses, although cookies from certain sites are described as spyware by many anti-spyware products (because they can allow users to be tracked when they visit various sites).


There are two main kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are deleted from your computer when you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies remain until they reach their expiry date or are otherwise deleted.

Cookies on our website

Some of the ways in which PESTSCENEINVESTIGATIONS.COM may use cookies are as follows:

  • to gather access, and/or statistical, and/or demographic data;
  • to individualize the users experience on this website;
  • to implement a shopping cart and associated functionality; and
  • to implement security and/or control systems.

Third party cookies

PESTSCENEINVESTIGATIONS.COM may implement third party services, software, or features which use cookies. As such, you may also be sent third party cookies.

Refusing cookies

Most modern browsers allow users to control whether to accept cookies, and the time frame to keep them. However, rejecting cookies makes some websites partially or wholly unusable. For example, shopping carts, login systems, or personalization systems implemented using cookies do not work if cookies are disabled.
