Detailing the use of cookies on Barbour.com

 

Barbour.com uses cookies, but what are they?

Website cookies are important pieces of information we use to tailor our website exactly to your needs. Cookies are harmless, tiny text files that are stored on your computer when you visit a website. They enable us to remember who you are when you visit us again.

How do they affect me?

Cookies don’t store any sensitive or personal information such as your name or address – we use the coded information gathered from them to help us perform tasks. These tasks include showing you products in your region, allowing you to watch a video or allowing you to connect with social media sites. By using our website, you agree that we can keep cookies in place and help us to remember a little about your viewing preferences, while keeping your personal details protected.

There are three types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies
  • Performance cookies
  • Functionality cookies

Some of these are ‘third party’ which means that other sites use them to gather information on our behalf – the information below explain further.

Strictly necessary cookies

These are essential to enable you to move around barbour.com and use its features properly. Basic functions such as remembering where you’re located rely on these key cookies.

Facebook Like Button

Should you have to log in after clicking a like button, Facebook will store an additional cookie to remember you are logged in to their service.

Using the tweet button will cause Twitter to store a number of cookies on your device, to enable the core functionality of the button. It will also store a cookie in order to remember you are logged in to your Twitter account should you have to log in after clicking the button. Twitter will also store cookies for their own Google Analytics account, in order to track your usage of their button anonymously. These cookies are the same as the ones Barbour uses for our Google Analytics account.

YouTube

youtube.com

The YouTube video player will store a number of cookies that enable the core functionality of the player, such as recording your play progress, whether you were logged in to your YouTube account, and recording your viewing statistics to be shown later on your own YouTube account page. YouTube also stores their own Google Analytics cookies, which function the same way as the ones Barbour place for our own site.

Pinterest

Should you have to log in after clicking the Pinterest button, it will also store a cookie to keep you logged in to their service.
