Use of cookies by Black Raven Armoury Ltd.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies can be first or third Party in location and Session or Persistent in type. There are four different categories of cookie, these are :- Strictly Necessary, Preferences, Statistics & Marketing

First & Third Party Cookies

Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie.

  • First party cookies – in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user – the website displayed in the URL window.
  • Third party cookies – are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third party cookie.

Black Raven Armoury uses both first & third party cookies

Session and Persistent cookies

Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens the browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer.

  • Session cookies – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.
  • Persistent cookies – are stored on a users’ device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising

Black Raven Armoury uses both session and persistent cookies.

Cookie categories

Cookies are placed into one or more of these 4 categories.

  • Strictly Necessary cookies –  are essential in making a website usable, by enabling basic functions like page navigation, shopping baskets, e-billing and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies
  • Preferences cookies – enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in.
  • Statistics cookies – help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
  • Marketing cookies – are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers.
