Cookies contain the website name for example “DTC Associates” and a unique user ID generated for each visitor to the site. The unique user ID is a code that lets the website know that you have returned and any preferences you have previously set will then show on the website. Cookies are sent from individual websites and stored on your browser.
Cookies are vital for websites to remember any preferences, usernames or goods in the online shopping basket. However if you do not register or leave any personal information on a website then all the website will know is that someone with your cookie has returned, the website will not know any other information.
This website uses both essential and non-essential cookies. Essential cookies are set when you submit a form, log in or just generally do things that go beyond clicking a simple link for example placing something in the online shopping basket.
Non-essential cookies can track the pages a visitor views when on the website. For example in order for us to analyse web page traffic we use traffic log cookies. This information is for statistical analysis only and is not retained in detail within the system and does not give the identity of the user.
