1. What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files with information downloaded to and stored on your computer, mobile or tablet. Some are necessary for you to make full use of the website’s functionality, while others are used to enhance your user experience, facilitate navigation on the website, and to provide you with more personalised marketing content.

We also use web beacons, which are used to collect data for ad delivery analytics and for specific events such as a registration or making a purchase. A web beacon, also known as a tracking pixel, is a tiny image referenced by a line of HTML or a block of JavaScript code embedded into our web site.

First-party cookies are placed directly by Dustin or by a third party at Dustin’s request.

Third-party cookies are placed by a third party or by Dustin at the request of a third party such as our analytics or advertising service providers.

Using cookies that keep track of what you previously showed an interest in enables us to show you relevant information that hopefully matches your personal preferences.

Cookies stay on your device for different periods of time depending on the purpose of the cookie. For example, a cookie which is necessary for the website to operate will only exist on your device whilst you use the website, but a cookie which is required to recognise you and your preferences when you return to the website will remain on your device for a longer period.

Session Cookies are cookies which expire once you close your web browser.

Persistent Cookies are cookies which stay on your device for a set period of time until you delete them.
