Cookies & Internet Advertising

By visiting the AlexandAlexa website with your computer set to accept cookies, you are consenting to the way we use our cookies, both on our website and via other ways we get in touch with you (Facebook, newsletters, etc.) You can read more about this in our Privacy Policy. Later on in this guide, you can find out how to modify the settings of your internet browser, so you know when you receive a new cookie or can disable cookies altogether.

Cookies and How We Use Them

A cookie is a piece of information that is stored on your computer's hard drive by your web browser which tracks your movements within websites. Like other websites, we use cookies, web beacons, and other technologies (we will refer to these collectively as ‘cookies’ throughout this guide).

Cookies are useful to us because:

  • They help us to recognise you on our site, so we can recommend products we think you’ll like and show you only the information we think you’ll be interested in seeing.
  • We can remember your specified preferences, such as the currency that you prefer to shop in.
  • We can keep track of items stored in your shopping basket.
  • We can stop fraudulent activities in their tracks.
  • We can make your shopping experience a safe one.

Cookies and Browser Settings

The Help tab on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. You can also disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons by changing the add-on settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

Internet Advertising

We display interest-based advertising (also sometimes known as personalised or targeted ads) based on information collected while you spend time looking at our site. Cookies enable us to learn about what ads you click on, and other actions you take on our site and other sites, so we can provide you with more useful and relevant information.

We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites that display our interest-based ads.

We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers and third party sites may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third party websites are not covered by our Privacy Policy or this Cookies & Internet Advertising page. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.
