What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on the browser or hard drive of your computer (or similar device) by websites that you visit. Cookies are used by practically all websites and the website is often dependent on cookies to function. Cookies can also be used to provide information to the owners of the particular website.
What cookies do we use and why?
We use several different types of cookies. Some of these are session cookies which are temporary and allow us to link your actions during a browser session. Others are persistent cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie.
These cookies are required to enable core Website functionality and are automatically enabled when you use our Website. This type of cookie allows us to remember login details or ensure that your shopping cart is saved during all the steps of the online checkout process, for example.
Functionality cookies are used to tailor your Website experience. For instance, these types of cookies are used to save and remind you of what products you had in your shopping cart for an incomplete order, so it will save you time if you would like to purchase these products at another time. Another example is that our Website will recognize you if you had previously filled out a form by pre-populating certain fields.
Performance cookies help us understand the behavior of our visitors and their usage of the Website. For example, these cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around on our Website when they are using it. These cookies help us to improve the way the Website works. These cookies can also used to help us measure how effective our advertising is.
Some of these cookies are managed by third parties, and you may refer to the third parties’ own website privacy notifications for further information. In particular, we use Google Analytics and Marketo cookies to help measure how users interact with our Website content, and to help improve the overall experience on our Website.
We do not make use of social media tracking cookies used by many social networks typically to enable users to share or bookmark web pages. However, we do make use of targeting cookies for behavioral advertising on certain social media networks (see below).
Targeting cookies are used on our Website to tailor marketing to you and your interests. These cookies remember that you visited certain pages of our Website and we may share this information with third-parties, such as advertisers.
Although these cookies can track your visits to our Website they typically cannot personally identify you. Without these cookies, the advertisements that you see may be less relevant and interesting to you.
