Protecting and managing your online privacy

To make our website more useful to a user, our servers, (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may store information on your device in the form of a cookie. Avon Protection does not use cookies to gather personal information. This section tells you how we use cookies, why, and how this allows us to improve our service. It also tells you how you can manage what cookies are stored on your device. We call it our "Cookies Policy".

By using our websites (through any device) you agree that this Cookies Policy applies to that use in addition to any other terms and conditions which may apply.

We reserve the right to make changes to our Cookies Policy. Any such changes shall appear here and become effective immediately. Your continued use of our websites is taken as meaning that you agree to any such changes.

 

What are Cookies

A cookie is a small file, downloaded onto a device upon the user visiting certain websites. Cookies are then sent back to originating website on each subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device.

There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way, but with subtle differences:

Session and persistent cookies


  • Session cookies – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as for remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. These session cookies are created temporarily and expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.

 

  • Persistent cookies – are stored on a users' device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users' preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.

 

  • First and third party cookies – Whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user - the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third party cookie.
