5. Cookies Issued By Our Website
Cookies are small text files that websites create and send to your computer or mobile device as you browse online. These files typically store information that the issuing websites will recall and reuse as you continue browsing or when you visit them again at a later date. For example, when you shop online, a cookie may be used to store the order value and item count in the basket as you shop. The same website may also use a cookie to store anonymous information about your visit, such as the page you land on, what other pages you then go on to view, and whether or not you are a returning visitor. Usually, the type of information stored by cookies is harmless and only used to enhance your online browsing experience. However, sometimes cookies are used for less innocent purposes, such as keeping track of the websites you go on to visit for third party profiling and targeted advertising purposes. Consequently, when you visit websites, you should be told which cookies are going to be issued, and for what exact purposes. The Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive is now UK law, and takes this a step further by requiring your consent before any non-essential cookies are issued.
6. Data Retention
When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.
