The Ideal Glass and Glazing website uses cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer by your web browser. Many websites and web servers use cookies to store information. Cookies contain a cookie ID, which is a unique identifier of a specific cookie. It consists of a character string where web pages and web servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited our websites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognised and identified using the unique cookie ID.

How are cookies used?

Through the use of cookies, Ideal Glass and Glazing provide users of the website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies being used. Cookies are often used to track website visitor activity, but they do have other uses. When you visit a website, the web server generates a cookie that acts as an ID (identification) card. Every time to revisit a website, your web browser sends the cookie back to the server.

Only the website that generates a cookie can read it, so other web servers are unable to access your information from other cookies. Additionally, web servers can only use whatever information is stored within the cookie, it doesn’t have access to anything else.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent cookies being generated by changing the setting of your web browser. You can decide if you want first party cookies and third party cookies to be enabled or disabled . Cookies that have already been generated can be deleted at any time by clearing the history log for your chosen web browser. This option is available in all major web browsers like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Edge and Opera. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser then some parts of our website may not work as they rely on the use of cookies.
