Winklet Web Design Cookie Policy

By using the winkletwebdesign.com website, you agree that cookies may be placed on your computer or internet enabled device.

What are cookies anyway?

Rather than being a delicious little biscuit that we usually enjoy with a fresh mug of tea, a cookie in this sense is a small amount of information that's downloaded to your computer when you visit websites. We use a number of different cookies on the winkletwebdesign website, including necessary, functional, and performance cookies. Cookies make your browsing experience better by allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as regional currency and shopping cart items). This means you don’t have to re-enter this information each time you return to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies also provide information on how people use the website, for instance whether it’s their first time visiting or if they are a frequent visitor. We use this information to improve the browsing experience for all of our users.

But what do you need these cookies for?

As with virtually all websites, winkletwebdesign.com uses cookies. These are often an essential element of your shopping experience such as cookies being used for remembering what is in your basket. We also use cookies for analytical purposes in order to help improve the site, our service, and your experience. The cookies used on our site can be split into three categories:

  • Session Cookies: allowing us to "remember" content from page to page (these expire when you leave the website or close the browser). These cookies are essential to our ecommerce and content managment platform.
  • Persistent Cookies: which define "Time To Live" and help us to determine your preferences (these will expire after the "Time To Live" period). These include the cookies that remember your basket content from a previous visit.
  • Performance Cookies: These cookies remember information about how you and other customers use our website. This gives us vital information such as which pages are visited most often and if customers are receiving error messages from certain pages. The role of these cookies is to allow us to analyse and improve the performance of our website ensuring you receive a consistent look, feel and shopping experience. Performance cookies (often known as web analytic cookies) don't collect any information that identifies the customer and all information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

How to control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
