What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that can be stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. These files are typically used to hold your user preferences, to store important data as you browse the website (such as the contents of your shopping cart), or to find out if you have browsed the website before. As these files can only store small amounts of data there is nothing dangerous about the files themselves, but some companies may use the information to track what other websites you have visited or to build a profile of your general online behaviour. Marilyn and Melrose do not involve themselves in these activities. Cookies we use don’t collect or store any sensitive information such as your name, address or payment card information.
What types of cookies are there?
Necessary & Functional Cookies: Necessary cookies are essential to make a website work and enable features that users have specifically asked for. Without these cookies, these features of the website could not operate properly. For example, these cookies remember the contents of your shopping cart or whether you are logged in as you browse the website, and to record the items that you have placed in your wish-list so that you can refer back to them. Functional cookies automatically remember preferences that users have previously made in order to enhance their experience next time they visit a website. We also work with a specialist email company called Mailchimp to provide a sign up form for which you can sign up to our newsletter. This popup may set a cookie called _AVESTA_ENVIRONMENT which is only used to determine that the popup has been shown to a customer.
