Third Party Cookies

In some cases, we also use cookies provided by trusted third parties. The following section details which third party cookies you might encounter through this site.

This site uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solutions on the web.

From time to time we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features cookies may be used to ensure you receive a consistent user experience and that we understand which optimizations our users appreciate the most.

Because we sell products through our web store, it is important for us to understand a few things. E.g. how many of our visitors actually make a purchase. This is the kind of data these cookies will track. Collecting this type of information is important to you as well since it means that we can accurately make business decisions related to product costs. With this data we can ensure our product is competitively priced.

The Google AdSense service we use to advertise uses a DoubleClick cookie to serve more relevant ads across the web and limit the number of times that a given ad is displayed in your browser.

For more information on Google AdSense see the official Google AdSense privacy FAQ.

In some cases, we may provide you with custom content based off the information you have provided us about yourself, either directly or indirectly. These types of cookies allow us to provide you with content that we feel may be of interest to you.

Several partners advertise on our behalf. Affiliate tracking cookies allow us to see if our customers have come to our site from one of our partner sites. This gives us the ability to credit them appropriately, and where applicable, allow our affiliate partners to provide any bonuses that they may offer you for making a purchase.

We also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this website. These features allow you to connect with your social network in various ways. For these to work, the following social media sites including; Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn will set cookies through our website which may be used to enhance your profile (on their site) or contribute to the data they collect.

More Information

Hopefully, that has clarified things for you. As was previously mentioned if you aren’t sure if you need cookies or not, it’s usually safer to leave them enabled. However, if you’re still looking for more information, feel free to contact us.
