If you visit this website to read or download information, we will record your server address, domain name, the date and time of your visit and the information downloaded. This information is used for statistical and site development purposes only.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the webserver that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Artiste Plastic Surgery pages, or register with Artiste Plastic Surgery site or services, a cookie helps Artiste Plastic Surgery to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Artiste Plastic Surgery website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Artiste Plastic Surgery features that you customized.

If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Artiste Plastic Surgery services or websites you visit.
