David Mason London - Cookies

Cookies on our websites

This Website Privacy Policy relates specifically to personal information we collect from you when you use the following websites

 

www.davidmasonlondon.com

www.davidmasonlondon.co.uk

www.davidmasonwatches.co.uk

This page contains information on what ‘cookies’ are, the cookies used by the David Mason London Limited websites, how to specifically disable third party advertising cookies, and some useful links for further reading on the subject. If it does not provide the information you were looking for, or you have any further questions about the use of cookies on our websites you can contact us on controller@davidmasonlondon.com

 

What are ‘cookies’?

‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile phone. Websites are able to read and write these files, allowing them store things like personalisation details or user preferences.

You can think of cookies as providing a “memory” for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately. Each web domain can only access cookies stored by that specific web domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains. Therefore when you visit websites, your browser may receive cookies from several sources.

 

How do we use cookies?

A visit to a page on our website may generate the following types of cookie:

Anonymous analytics cookies
Geotargetting cookies
Registration cookies
Advertising cookies
Third party advertising cookies

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you’ve visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don’t, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. Unless you are signed into the website, these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only.

Geotargetting cookies

We also generate anonymous geotargetting cookies. These are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from information supplied by your browser when it requests a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content and advertising.

Registration cookies

When you register with us, we generate cookies that represent whether you are signed in or not. Our servers use these cookies to work which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service. Unless you click “Remember me” when you sign in, these cookies get deleted when you either close your browser or shut down your computer.

While you are signed into the website, we combine information from your registration cookies with the above mentioned web analytics cookies, which we could use to identify which pages you have seen on our website as an individual.

Advertising cookies

Sometimes we need to know whether or not you’ve seen an advert or a type of advert, and how long it is since you’ve seen it. In order to do this, we place a cookie on your machine when we show you some types of advertising. We also use cookies to assist in targeted advertising. We may use cookies set by a third party to more accurately target advertising to you, to show, for example, adverts about holidays to users who have recently visited the travel section of our site.

These cookies are anonymous. We also set anonymous cookies to users on certain third party sites. If you receive one of those cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit the same site, and will serve targeted advertising based on this information.

Third party advertising cookies

we serve elements of pages from multiple sources, and so after visiting our sites you may see other cookies from third parties. A lot of the advertisements you see our sites are generated by third parties. Some of these third parties use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once. The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies. These third party advertising cookies may be used by those third parties to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to our site.

Other third party cookies

On some pages, components supplied by third parties may also set their own anonymous cookies, for the purposes of tracking the success of their application, or customising the application for you. Because of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by ourselves

 

How do I turn cookies off?

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. In order to understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details.

Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
Cookie settings in Firefox
Cookie settings in Chrome

We do not recommend turning cookies off when visiting our site, as this will prevent you from registering, signing in, purchasing, placing an order and using some of the other services on the websites.

If you are primarily concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off by going to the third party’s website and getting them to generate a one-time “no thanks” cookie, which will stop any further cookies being served to your machine.

Here are links to two of the third party advertising platforms, each of which have instructions on how to do this:

DoubleClick (owned by Google)

You can also visit the trade body representing these advertising platforms for more information:

Network Advertising Iniative

They have provided a one-stop place that gathers all of the opt-out controls. Please bear in mind that the are many more networks listed on this site than those that we use at David Mason London http://networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
