What are cookies?
Some cookies collect information about browsing and purchasing behavior when you access our websites via the same computer or device.

All data passed by cookies is anonymous and will never contain individual details such as your name, address, telephone number, or payment information but may contain our customer reference number that is unique to you. For more detailed information about how cookies work, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
HOW ARE COOKIES MANAGED?
The cookies stored on your computer or other devices when you access our websites are designed by:
Bract & Pistil or on our behalf and are necessary to enable you to make purchases on our websites; third parties who participate with us in marketing programs; and third parties who publish web banner advertisements for us.
WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR?
For functional purposes essential to the effective operation of our websites, particularly in relation to online transactions, site navigation, and preferences.
For marketing and advertising, particularly web banner advertisements and targeted updates through digital channels and social media.
To enable us to collect information about your browsing and shopping behavior, helping us to improve your shopping experience and to monitor performance.
To enable us to meet our contractual obligations to make payments to third parties when a product is purchased by someone who has visited our website from a site operated by those parties.
Bract & Pistil works with partners who serve advertisements or present online offers on our behalf. Most of these marketing partners use both session and persistent cookies. These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. All data collected by third-party cookies is anonymous and will never contain your name, address, telephone number, email address or payment details.
WHAT TYPE OF COOKIES DO WE USE?
Two types of cookies may be used during your visit to our site:

Session cookies allow you to add an item to the basket and then move through the checkout. Disallowing these cookies via your web browser will mean you cannot place an order on this site.

TURNING OFF AND DELETING COOKIES
Most web browsers will provide the option to turn off or disallow cookies. How you do this depends on the web browser you are using. Instructions for disabling cookies can usually be found in the browser's 'Help' menu. Note that in common with most other transactional websites, if you only disable third-party cookies, you will not be prevented from making purchases on our websites but refusing the cookies we have used via your web browser will mean that you cannot make a transactional purchase on our website. You may also find that the functionality of many other websites and services will be affected. Cookies can be deleted using your web browser. However, unless they are disallowed, they will be reapplied the next time you visit a website.
