As much as we’d like this page to be about those delicious edible biscuits, it’s not. Cookies in the internet-world are tiny text files that get stored on your computer when you visit a website.
They’re found on every website in existence, and are crucial to how you interact with the internet. Without them you’d never store a password or be able to purchase online. Kind of a big deal...
Now, new legislation from the European Union have asked all websites to be fully transparent about the cookies they use, whether it’s a Government’s website or your mum’s online blog.
So what cookies do Stinkyink use?
The Customer Cookie
You couldn’t actually buy printer ink from us without the use of our main cookie! All this cookie does is store your shopping cart information, and without it your basket would forever be empty. At no point does this cookie store personal information, such as your name, card details or anything of the sort.
If you decide you’d rather not have this cookie, close your browser and give us a call on 0844 414 4141. Ours, and pretty much every online shop, needs a cookie like this to work.
The Optional Stinkyink cookies...
Our Brainy Cookie
This cookie gives us anonymised performance information on our website to help improve it. e.g. 5,000 people saw the Stinkyink.com homepage this morning.
We need this to highlight poor performing areas of the website. The data shows us problems, we fix them, and everyone can order cartridges again!
