What are cookies anyway?
Rather than being a delicious little biscuit that we usually enjoy with a fresh mug of tea, a cookie in this sense is a small amount of information that's downloaded to your computer when you visit websites. We use a number of different cookies on the 8Ball website, including necessary, functional, performance and targeting cookies. Cookies make your browsing experience better by allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login and region selection). This means you don’t have to re-enter this information each time you return to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies also provide information on how people use the website, for instance whether it’s their first time visiting or if they are a frequent visitor. We use this information to improve the browsing experience for all of our users.
But what do you need the cookies for?
- Session Cookies: allowing us to “remember” content from page to page (these expire when you leave the website or close the browser). These cookies are essential to our ecommerce platform.
- Persistent Cookies: which define “Time To Live” and help us to determine your preferences (these will expire after the “Time To Live” period). These include the cookies that remember your basket content from a previous visit.
- Third Party Cookies: these are cookies from any other domain, such as recommended product and advertising services. These are obviously kept to a minimum on our site.
How Do I Disable Cookies?
If you want to disable cookies you need to change your website browser settings to reject cookies. How to do this will depend on the browser you use, a quick google search will get you the most up to date information on how to do this on your browser.
