The Cookie Law itself is somewhat ambiguous as to which cookies are deemed strictly necessary, functional or intrusive. We believe that the cookies in use on discountfiresupplies.co.uk are all necessary to provide the functionality our customers expect from a quality online retailer.
What is a Cookie?
Cookies are tiny files that are stored on the device you use to access the internet, whether you’re using a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone. They contain data and they’re commonly used to remember who you are and which choices you’ve made on a website, for example which products you’ve added to your shopping basket or if you’ve ‘Liked’ a page on Facebook.
The bulk of Cookie data is stored anonymously – this means that your personal details are not stored and actions cannot be traced back to an individual.
Which Cookies do we use?
In Schedule 1 we have listed the cookies required to allow the e-commerce functionality of our website – the features that allow you to buy products online. These cookies are placed on your device by our website and deleted after your shopping session.
In Schedule 2 we have outlined any third party cookies in use. These predominately allow us to use social sharing buttons on our website like Facebook’s Like button. Google Analytics also places cookies on your device on our behalf which enables us to monitor how visitors use our website so we can enhance your customer experience.
