Cooksongold Cookies

Version 1.1 | 23rd May 2018


What are cookies?


Cookies are pieces of computer code that allow small amounts of information to be passed from your internet browser to our web server. They allow websites to recognise your PC, mobile, tablet or other device as you browse. For more detailed information about how cookies work, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org

Why do we use cookies on Cooksongold?

Cookies serve many functions. Some examples are that they allow us remember whether you are logged in to the site, to remember what items you had in your shopping basket and to serve content tailored specifically for you. Cookies are used with our marketing partners to present you with appropriate offers and advertising as you browse other sites on the internet, based on the products you looked at while on our site. Cookies also allow us to work alongside our web analytics partner, Google Analytics, to see how you like to use our websites, which pages or special functions you prefer and help us to make them better. This helps us to continually improve our service.

What cookies do Cooksongold use?

We may use the following types of cookies during your visit on Cooksongold:


Strictly Necessary
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.


Performance Cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.


Functional Cookies

These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.


Targeting Cookies

These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.


Social Cookies

These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit.

Manage your cookies

To make it easier for you to understand the way a website uses cookies, we have grouped them into easy to understand categories. The information is provided to you in an open and transparent way, so that you can see how cookies are used to improve your experience.

However, if you wish to control and remove cookies, this can be done via settings in your web browser.

Note that in common with most other transactional websites, refusing cookies via your web browser will mean that you are unable to make a transactional purchase on Cooksongold. Plus many of the interactive functions offered on Cooksongold are dependent on cookies so by disabling or blocking cookies can prevent these services from working or reduce their usefulness.

Different web browsers may use different methods for managing cookies. Please follow the instructions below, from the web browser manufacturers directly, to configure your browser settings*.

IE Logo Chrome Safari Firefox
Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) Google Chrome Safari Firefox

 

* These links are to third party sites, over which we have no control – no liability can be claimed if they are inaccurate.

Banner Advertising on Other Websites

This type of advertising is designed to provide you with a selection of products based on what you've viewed on Cooksongold, which are displayed to you by our agency when you visit other selected websites. The adverts include our latest products and deals based on your previous shopping history. The technology behind these adverts are based on cookies.

Your privacy

Please be assured that the data contained in the cookie used in these adverts is completely anonymous and doesn't contain any of your personal details. For more information on the privacy policy of Criteo and Google, please visit their websites.


Disabling these adverts

We would like to continue to display content that’s relevant to you; however, you can choose to opt out of this type of advertising from Criteo by following this link and by Google by clicking here. Please note though, that if you delete your cookies too, we won’t know that you’ve opted out, so the banners from Criteo and Google will reappear when you visit some other websites.
