AAEON uses “cookies” to collect information when you visit company websites. This information is used to give us an insight into website usage and effectiveness, improve our products and services, and to personalize your online experience.
A “cookie” can be defined as a piece of data that a website sends to your browser and that may then be stored on your computer as a hardware identifier. Cookies are most commonly used to assess website usage – visitor numbers, length of visit – and effectiveness – pages and topics visitors are most interested in – and also to make website navigation easier. Used in this way, cookies have no real connection to personal information. However, cookies are sometimes used to track user preferences in order to personalize and improve user experience.
Cookies can be broken down into two groups: "session cookies” and "persistent cookies.” Session cookies aid efficiency and are erased when the user closes their web browser. They track the things users do from page to page, meaning that people are not repeatedly asked for the same information. Persistent cookies are stored on a user’s hard disk and will not be deleted when a web browser is closed. They are used to record information about things like preferred language and user location.
We recommend that you leave your cookies turned on as they make it possible for you to take full advantage of some of our websites' features. If you turn off, block, or otherwise reject our cookies, you will be unable to sign in to websites, add items to your shopping cart or proceed to the checkout in the eShop, and some webpages may not load properly.
