What are cookies?
Cookies are small, harmless files placed on your computer’s hard drive or browser memory when you visit a website.
What do cookies do?
Cookies generally help to make the interaction between websites and users faster and easier by identifying users automatically. Cookies can help a web server identify a user and thereby suggest non-confidential information like log in details, previously entered information in forms, settings etc.
What type of cookies do you use?
We use both ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies. The former are used and stored only for the duration of your visit (or your ‘session’ in other words) and are deleted when you close your browser. The session cookies simply allows us to identify that the same person is moving from page to page.
The latter, ‘persistent’ cookies lasts beyond your session. These enables our website to identify you as a user every time you use the same computer to visit our site.
In addition to these we also use a handful of Third Party cookies. These are generally for social sites like Facebook and Twitter. You can find their cookies policies on their respective sites.
Are cookies safe?
Yes! Cookies are simply harmless text files. They are not in any way separate programs that can run individually and potentially harm your computer. Cookies can’t carry viruses or anything the like. In short, completely safe.
Why should I keep cookies switched on?
Simply put, almost every website rely in some form or another on cookies. You won’t be able to sign in or even place an order for any of our products if cookies are not enabled.
How do I turn cookies on or off?
You have a number of options and ways to do this. You can set your browser to simply reject all cookies (not recommended), to allow only ‘trusted’ sites to send them or to accept cookies only from the sites you are currently using.
We do not recommend blocking all cookies as it’s usually an essential part of a website for it to work properly.
For your convenience we’ve added a few links with information on cookies (turning the on/off, removing them etc.) and the way they are used in the most common browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox, Safari, Safari iOS, Internet Explorer
