A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
We may collect information about activity on our websites, or we may use other organisations to collect the information and to share the results with us. We use this information to analyse statistics; track pages and paths used by visitors to our websites; target the banner adverts on our websites and on the websites of other organisations; and track the use of our internet banner adverts and other links from our marketing partners' websites to our websites.
For these purposes, we and the other organisations we use keep information on the path you take to get to our websites and on the pages you visit on our websites, using cookies and web beacons. You cannot be personally identified from the information that we or these other organisations collect.
Information supplied by cookies can help Howarth Timber to analyse the profile of our visitors, what products they are interested in and what they buy. This helps us to provide future visitors with a better user experience.
Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website's features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
