This policy describes the different types of cookies we use and how you can manage your cookie preferences.
There are two types of cookies:
Session cookies - these are temporary and are erased when you close your browser at the end of your surfing session. The next time you visit the site it will not recognise you and will treat you as a completely new visitor as there is nothing in your browser to let the site know that you have visited before.
Persistent cookies - these remain on your hard drive until you erase them or they expire. How long a cookie remains on your browser depends on how long the website has programmed the cookie to last, ie the duration period.
For further information about what cookies are, we recommend you visit www.aboutcookies.org for more detailed guidance.
The following list describes the cookies we use on this site, what we use them for and the length of time we keep them.
When you first visited this web site, we asked you to provide us with your Cookie preferences. You can change these preferences at any time by simply clicking on the following link:
We sometimes embed video content from websites such as YouTube. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from, for example,YouTube, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. Easons.com does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.
Easons.com carries embedded "share" buttons to enable users to easily share content with their friends through a number of popular social networks. These sites may set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service. Easons.com does not control the dissemination of these cookies and you should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.
You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Easons.com. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting Easons.com, and the specific pages you are on, even if you don’t click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Google and Facebook. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.
Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site – e.g. our monthly Thank You Card newsletter. Some emails we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of Easons.com emails which you can do via the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the footer of every promotional email we send.
