IP Addresses and Cookies
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type. This data will be used for system administration and to highlight aggregate information.
Similarly, we may collect information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie file is just like a user’s identity card, it contains information that is transferred to the hard drive of your computer. They are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means that they cannot be used to track your movements around the web. Passwords and account numbers are not stored in cookies. A cookie helps you get the best out of the Website and helps us to provide you with a more customised service, it enables us to recognise you, informs us when you are revisit our site, helps us to improve our site, and enables us to deliver a better service. It allows us to estimate our audience size, usage pattern and store data about your preferences which enables us to customise our site to be relevant to you. Cookie files can only ever contain and transfer to a website as much information as the users have disclosed to that site. Cookies, therefore, cannot read or interfere with other information saved on your hard drive.
The majority of computers are set up to automatically accept cookies as most e-commerce sites will not work effectively without them. You can, however, refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies or to alert as to when a cookie is being sent, giving you the option to either accept or decline it.
If you have any specific questions about how we handle your data please email us on enquiries(at)brits (dot) co(dot)uk.
