 A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our website. By continuing to browse our website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

1. Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around Eason’s website and use its features. These cookies are deleted when you close your browser. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website.

2. Performance or Analytical Cookies

These cookies collect information about how users use Eason’s website. For example, Eason uses Google Analytics to track anonymized usage statistics for the site. This data is used to analyse how frequently people visit the site, how the website is found, and which pages are most frequently viewed.

These cookies do not collect information that identifies a website user. This information is combined with data from thousands of other users to create an overall view of website use, and is never identified individually or personally. These cookies are only used to identify ways to improve the website. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites please visit: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

3. Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow us to recognise you and remember choices you make (such as choice of language or mobile device preferences) when you return to our website.

4. Advertising or Targeting Cookies

To measure the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns we use cookies set by third parties. For example, for measuring how many unique browsers have seen a particular advertisement and how many of those subsequently visit our website. The data these third parties collect using cookies does not identify individual users. Each have their own privacy policy which will tell you how they use cookies and data tags.

You can opt out of one or all third party Online Behavioural Advertising (OBA) cookies on the web browser you are currently using with an "opt-out cookie" by visiting  http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ie/your-ad-choices.

Functional

These cookies allow our websites to remember information that changes the way the site behaves or looks, such as your preferred language or the region you are in. For instance, by remembering your region, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news. These cookies can also assist you in changing text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can personalise.

 

Loss of the information stored in a preference cookie may make the website experience less functional but should not prevent it from working.

 

Most Google users will have a preferences cookie called ‘NID’ in their browsers. A browser sends this cookie with requests to Google’s sites. The NID cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to remember your preferences and other information, such as your preferred language (e.g. English), how many search results you wish to have shown per page (e.g. 10 or 20) and whether or not you wish to have Google’s SafeSearch filter turned on.
