Sparks Gift Wholesalers and Amalfi Imports Cookie Policy

We at Sparks Gift Wholesalers take our customer service very seriously. Not only do we want to offer great service when it comes to selling our products but also peace of mind when dealing with administrative issues such as data protection, payment details and cookies.

Firstly, you probably want to know what a cookie is – Well this is a small file that holds a small file of data which our website can then send to your browser and may then be stored on your hard drive.
This then enables users to navigate around the website and can allow us to customise our services and website accordingly.

IMPORTANT – PLEASE DO NOT WORRY - COOKIES CANNOT LOOK INTO YOUR COMPUTER AND OBTAIN ANY PERSONAL DATA ABOUT YOU OR READ ANYTHING ON YOUR HARD DRIVE.

Now the scientific bit !

Websites use two types of cookie. Let's deal with SESSION COOKIES first – These are temporary files that allow customers to carry information across the website without having to re-enter it and these cookies DELETE THEMSELVES when you close down your browser.

The other cookie is what's know as a PERSISTENT COOKIE – This cookie remains on your computer and allows the website to recognise users when they return to the site and remembers certain information about their preferences. These can be deleted manually by you at any time.

Computers are generally set up to allow cookies but you can if you wish disable or reject them.
The only problem when doing this is some parts of our website will not work properly or maybe not at all.

Hopefully this will have put your mind at rest but if you're at all worried please have a look at http://allaboutcookies.org as this will explain in more detail how cookies are used, how you can delete them and how to adjust your browser settings on your hard drive.
