Rockerline and cookies

 

Cookies are the small pieces of data that websites send to your browser in order to make web browsing easier and quicker for you.

 

At Rockerline we have always used cookies to make our site work as efficiently as possible for our customers. We also use them to get an idea of how many visits our site is attracting – which, for an online business, is valuable information we use to make improvements to the inner workings of our site.

 

What is a cookie?

 

Cookies are small pieces of data that websites store in your browser in order to remember your personal settings – eg: stuff like whether you are logged in, or which items you just added to your shopping basket. They’re mostly used to speed up your browsing experience. Without them, you would probably get really bored of filling in the same information repeatedly or waiting for a page to reload.

 

Websites can also use cookies to report on traffic and visitor actions. For instance, where users came to their site from, how many times they’ve visited, what pages they looked at and how long they spent browsing. Again, helpful for us in terms of the usability of our website and our navigation design etc.

 

Cookies are anonymous. They use a randomly generated number to identify themselves and contain no information that could personally identify you.

 

We hope that explains things clearly. For more information about cookies and how you can control the way they’re used on your browser, have a look at the Wikipedia article on cookies or at the Government cookie guide.
