A Cookie is:

A very small text file placed on your hard drive by a Web Page server. It is essentially your identification card, and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.

A Cookie’s Purpose is:

To tell the server that you returned to that Web page.

How a Cookie Helps You:

It saves you time.

If you personalize pages, or register for products or services, a cookie helps our website remember who you are.

Next time you return, we know to show you the information you requested.  Of course, if you never register or leave personal information with Sacks.ie, then the server only knows that someone with your cookie has returned to the Web site. You are in charge of deciding whether we know anything about you.

How a Cookie Helps Us:

It allows us to be more efficient. We can learn what information is important to our visitors, and what isn’t. We can discard Web pages you don’t use, and focus our efforts on information you need.

Anonymous Analytics Cookies:

Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie.

These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don’t, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.

These cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. We use anonymous analytics cookies in order to constantly improve our site performance and organisation.

On some pages, third parties may also set their own anonymous cookies, for the purposes of tracking the success of their application, or customising the application for you. Because of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by this website. We use 3rd Party Cookies to provide a richer social experience.
