This describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from http://www.honolulucookie.com (the “Site”).

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

“Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier.

  •  

    Types of web-based cookies (and not the type we sell):
  • Session (or Transient) Cookie

    Session cookies are stored in your computer's memory for the length of your browsing session. They become inaccessible after the session has been inactive for a time and are automatically deleted from your computer when the browser is closed. They allow you to move from page to page without having to log-in repeatedly.

  • Persistent (or Permanent) Cookies

    Persistent cookies are stored on the user's computer memory and are not deleted when the browser is closed. They are used to keep your preferences for the website, so that they will be remembered for next time you visit the website. They are also used to collect information about the number of visitors, the average time spent on a particular page and analyse shopping behaviour on the website. This information is used to find out how the well the website works and where it can be improved.

  • Flash Cookies (or locally shared objects)

    You will probably have Adobe Flash installed on your computer. Many websites that contain Flash can also store small files on your computer that are used in the same way as cookies.

    Websites choose to use Flash Cookies as these can hold more information than regular cookies. When you delete cookies via your browser, your Flash cookies are unlikely to be affected. A website may therefore still recognise your preferences if it used a Flash cookie to save them initially.

  • Third-Party Cookies

    Honolulu Cookie Company works with selected companies to provide additional content and services, for example reviews. These companies may also set cookies on our behalf.

  • Advertising on Other Websites

    Cookies are used to advertise relevant products to you on other websites, based on the products and categories you looked at on the Site.

    For these adverts, our third party providers may use software that can set a cookie to your browser, this will enable us to monitor whether you see the adverts, click on them and buy from our website. Cookies are placed on your computer if your browser is set to allow these. If you wish to ‘turn off’ cookies, then please check your browser’s help files for guidance on how to do so. The Help section is usually found in the Menu bar at the top of the browser. Some browsers provide help if the F1 key is pressed. However, you may lose some of the functionality of this website.

    The data contained in the cookie used in these adverts is anonymous and doesn't contain any of your personal details.

    For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
