What are cookies?
In order to provide you with a more personalised and responsive service, we need to remember and store information about how you use this Website. This is done using small text files called cookies. A cookie is a small text file that can be stored on and accessed from your device when you visit one of our Sites, to the extent you agree. Cookies contain small amounts of information and are downloaded to your computer or other devices by a server for this Website. Your web browser then sends these cookies back to this Website on each subsequent visit so that it can recognise you and remember things like your user preferences. You can find more detailed information about cookies and how they work at http://www.aboutcookies.org/ and www.youronlinechoices.eu.
To administer our Sites and for research purposes, LJ Scales & Tills also has contracted with third-party service providers to track and analyse statistical usage and volume information from our Site users. These third-party service providers use persistent Cookies to help us to improve the user experience, manage our Site content, and analyse how users navigate and utilise the Sites.
Our Cookies are used for the following purposes:
Strictly Necessary/ Technical
These Cookies are necessary to allow us to operate our Sites so you may access them as you have requested. These Cookies, for example, let us recognise that you have created an account and have logged into that account to access Site content. They also include Cookies that enable us to remember your previous actions within the same browsing session and secure our Sites.
These Cookies are used by us or third-party service providers to analyse how the Sites are used and how they are performing. For example, these Cookies track what pages are most frequently visited, and from what locations our visitors come from. If you subscribe to a newsletter or otherwise register with the Sites, these Cookies may be correlated to you. These Cookies include, for example, Google Analytics cookies & Facebook cookies.
These Cookies let us operate the Sites in accordance with the choices you make. These Cookies permit us to "remember" you in-between visits. For instance, we will recognise your username and remember how you customised the Sites and services, for example by adjusting text size, fonts, languages and other parts of web pages that are alterable and provide you with the same customisations during future visits.
Third Party Advertising & Social Buttons
We also use ‘social buttons’ to enable our users to share or bookmark web pages. These are buttons for third party social media sites and these sites may log information about your activities on the Internet including on this Website.
How to control cookies
Other than strictly necessary cookies described in the preference centre, we require your permission before placing any other types of cookie. You can accept or reject all cookies (other than strictly necessary cookies) by using the buttons available on the Cookies Banner.
If you do not want Cookies to be dropped on your device, or if you wish to accept or reject specific categories of cookies you can adjust the setting of your Internet browser to reject the setting of all or some Cookies and to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your device.

Obviously, there are many browsers available and we have just listed the options that we see as the most popular browsers that are used by our customers, so for all other browsers we suggest you consult your online Help files. Most browsers will allow you to see what cookies you have and delete them on an individual basis or block cookies from particular or all websites. Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies, including your preference to opt-out from cookies as this itself requires an opt-out cookie to have been set.
If you want to remove previously-stored Cookies, you can manually delete the Cookies at any time. However, this will not prevent the sites from placing further Cookies on your device unless and until you adjust your Internet browser setting as described above.
For further information about how to do so, please refer to your browser ‘help’ / ‘tool’ or ‘edit’ section or see www.allaboutcookies.org . Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all Cookies (including strictly necessary Cookies) you may not be able to access or use all or parts or functionalities of our Sites.

We may modify or amend this Cookie Notice from time to time at our discretion. When we make changes to this notice, we will amend the revision date at the top of this page, and such modified or amended Cookie Notice shall be effective as to you and your information as of that revision date. We encourage you to periodically review this Cookie Notice to be informed about how we are using cookies.
