What are cookies?
Cookies (or similar technologies) are certain pieces of information containing unique reference numbers that a website transfers to your device to be stored on your device and sometimes track your data. The series of cookies we use only remain for the duration of your visit to the website (“short-term cookies”) and terminate when you close your browser. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to our website (www.sunshinelights.com) (collectively, our website) and these cookies are retained for longer periods of time (“long-term cookies”). Cookies cannot operate programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They are uniquely sent to your device and sent back to the originating website each time you return to the site (e.g. they are older than a single view) or other websites that recognize the cookie.
Some of the cookies used on our website are set by us and some by third parties who provide services on our behalf, such as online marketing and data analytics service providers.
Our website uses the following categories of cookies:

Category 4: Targeted cookies or marketing cookies
These cookies collect data about your browsing preferences in order to provide you with marketing information that is more relevant to you and your preferences. They can also be used to limit the number of times you see an ad and help measure the effectiveness of a campaign. These cookies are usually set by third-party marketing networks. They record the websites you visit and share this information with other parties, such as marketers.
