What are cookies and do we use them?
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Website that is saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. It holds information a site may need to interact with you and personalize your experience. At jameshooklobster.com, we use two kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. Once you exit your browser, they go away. We use session cookies to maintain information we need to have in order for you to shop at jameshooklobster.com. For example, the Session ID cookie that we ask your browser to hold retains the ID for your shopping cart. Without the Session ID cookie, you can’t add merchandise to your cart and then Checkout.
Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit; they do not go away when you exit your browser. At jameshooklobster.com we use persistent cookies to give you a more personalized shopping experience and to help you navigate our store more efficiently. We will use your information to enhance your site experience. However, you can use our site without accepting a persistent cookie. To do so, you should set your browser options to reject persistent cookies. Alternatively, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which gives you the opportunity to decide whether you want to accept it or not. In many instances, the Help button on your browser toolbar will tell you how you can take these steps.
Cookies can be used by a Website to recognize you. But that does not necessarily mean any personal information is stored in the cookies. At jameshooklobster.com, we store no personal information about you in the cookies. Anything you choose to tell us about yourself (such as your address and email address) is stored safely and separately on our secured servers, and you need to provide a password to access it.
