Why Do We Use Cookies?

Cookies do lots of different jobs on the Website. We want you to understand the different types of cookies that we use on the Website.

Generally, the cookies used on our Website perform up to four different functions:

1. Strictly Necessary Cookies:

    These are cookies which are strictly necessary for us to provide a service requested by you, or to comply with legal requirements.

    We use a number of these 'strictly necessary' cookies. For example, these types of cookies provide the necessary security that your visit to the Website requires, help ensure the content of the pages you request load quickly and remember which The Spare Company products you wish to buy when you put them in your 'Shopping Bag'. Without these cookies, some of the services that you have asked for cannot be provided.

    We want you to understand these types of cookies, and why we use them, but we don't need to get your consent to use them on the Website, because we use these cookies only to provide you with services that you have requested

    2. Performance Cookies:

      These cookies collect anonymous information about the web pages you visit.

      We use these cookies to collect information about how visitors use the Website. For example, which pages our visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages on those pages.

      These performance cookies don't collect personal data (as defined in our privacy policy) – all information they collect is aggregated and anonymous. The information gathered is only used to improve how the Website work.

The aim of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience so that you don't have to reset your preferences each time you visit us.

      4. Targeting, Advertising + Third-Party Cookies + Similar Technologies:

      We allow third party cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, placed by our re-targeting and advertising partners, to track your browsing habits on our Website (and also elsewhere on the internet and other apps) so that we can later show you targeted ads on other websites (including on social media sites) which we hope are relevant to your interests. For example, if you viewed pages on our Website relating to a particular product, you may be later be shown one of our advertisements relating to these or similar products when you are viewing pages on another website (including on social media sites) or app. These types of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies and the information they collect are also used to limit the number of times you see these advertisements, as well as to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns and to provide other measurement services.
