Cookies and pixel tags
A cookie is a small amount of data which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to in this policy as a ‘device’) from the Website and is stored on your device’s hard drive. A cookie records on your device information relating to your internet activity (such as whether you have visited the Website before).
A pixel tag is an invisible tag placed on a website, but not on your device, for the purpose of tracking activity on that website. When you access those pages of the Website, pixel tags generate a notice of that visit. Pixel tags usually work in conjunction with cookies.
We currently set the following cookies and pixel tags:
1. Google Tag Manager Container is a Google product that enables website owners to centrally control the use of third party tags on their website. We use the following third party tags in Google Tag Manager Container:
Google AdWords Conversion - This records conversions on the Website’s conversion pages from search ads or product listing ads (shopping), as well as the conversion value of users once they make a purchase on the Website. You can opt out of Google AdWords Conversion by visiting Google's Ads Settings.
Google Analytics - This is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. to track Website behaviour. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting your use of the Website – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics, visit this Google page.
2. Facebook Pixel
There is one pixel for Facebook which gives us user Website behaviour information after a user interacts with our Facebook or Instagram ads. We track everything from a user viewing specific product, through adding that item to cart and checking out. This allows us to retarget, build lookalike audiences, and run dynamic product ads. The standard events the Facebook pixel is customized to report on are different types of conversion events such as a Page View, View Content (Product Page), Add to Cart, and Purchase. You can opt out of the Facebook Pixel by visiting the Adverts tab in your Facebook profile settings.
3. Pinterest Pixel
This gives us click through data and Website behaviour from users who came to the Website through interacting with a Pinterest ad. This allows us to obtain revenue data from users who visit the Website and make a purchase after interacting with that Pinterest ad. You can opt out of the Pinterest Pixel by going to your account settings and turning off Personalization.
