What are cookies?
Cookies (or similar technologies) are pieces of information which include a unique reference code that a website transfers to your device to store and sometimes track information about you. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session (session cookies) and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are used, for example, to remember you when you return to websites owned and operated by us (including www.sunshinelights.com, www.sunshinelights.com/tc/, www.sunshinelights.com/en/) (collectively, our Site) and will last for longer (persistent cookies). Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They are uniquely assigned to your device and are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit (if they last longer than a web session) or to another website that recognizes that cookie.
Some of the cookies used on our Site are set by us, and some are set by third parties who are delivering services (such as interest-based advertising and web analytics) on our behalf.
We use the following categories of cookies on our Site:
Category 1: Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Site or areas with paid-for content. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like ‘passwordless’ login and shopping baskets, cannot be provided. Because such cookies are essential for using the Site, these cookies cannot be turned off without severely affecting your use of the Site.
Category 2: Performance Cookies
These cookies collect anonymous information on how people use our Site. For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how customers arrive at our Site, browse or use our Site and highlight areas where we can improve our Site such as navigation, shopping experience and marketing campaigns. The data stored by these cookies never shows personal details from which your individual identity can be established.
Category 3: Functional Cookies
These cookies remember choices you make such as the country you visit Site from, language and search parameters. These can then be used to provide you with an experience more appropriate to your selections and to make the visits more tailored and pleasant. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Category 4: Targeting cookies or advertising cookies
These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. The cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks. They remember the websites you visit and that information is shared with other parties such as advertisers. For example, we use third party companies such as Forward3D to provide you with more personalised adverts when visiting other websites.
Category 5: Social Media Cookies
These cookies allow you to share what you have been doing on the Site on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. These cookies are not within our control. Please refer to the respective privacy policies for how their cookies work.
