What are cookies?
A cookie is a small amount of information that’s downloaded to your computer or device when you visit certain websites. We use a number of different cookies on the Olfactory Coffee Roasters 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.
What cookies do we use and why?
Some cookies are necessary to allow you to browse our website, use its features, and access secure areas. The use of these cookies is essential for the website to work, and we do not use these cookies to collect personal information about you. For example, we use user-input cookies for the duration of a session to keep track of a user’s input when filling in forms that span several pages.
We also use functional cookies to remember choices you’ve made or information you’ve provided, such as your username, language, or the region you are in. This allows us to tailor your website experience specifically to your preferences. For example, authentication cookies are functional cookies that are used for the duration of a session (or persistent, if you agree to the “remember me” function) to allow users to authenticate themselves on subsequent visits or to gain access to authorized content across pages.
We use Shopify as the platform of our website and webstore. Here is a list of the cookies that Shopify uses on our website, and the purposes for which they are used:
_session_id - Unique Token, Sessional - Allows Shopify to store information about your session (referrer, landing page, etc..)
_shopify_visit - No data held, Persistent for 30 minutes from the last visit - Used by the Shopify internal stats tracker to record the number of visits to the shop
_shopify_uniq - No data held, Expires midnight (relative to the visitor) of the next day - Counts the number of visits to a store by a single customer
cart - Unique token, Persistent for 2 weeks - Stores information about the contents of your cart
_secure_session_id - Unique token, Sessional - Stores session information for the checkout process
storefront_digest - Unique token, Indefinite - If the shop has a password, this is used to determine if the current visitor has access
We also use Google Analytics and other third-party analytics providers to help measure how users interact with our website content. These cookies “remember” what our users have done on previous pages and how they’ve interacted with the website. For more information on Google Analytics, visit Google’s information page. For instructions on how opt out of Google Analytics, see below.
