A cookie is a small file or a string of letters and numbers stored in your browser by websites that you visit. Cookies help to make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. For example, when you use the Rings & Things website, cookies help our site remember the information you provided during previous interactions to ensure you receive an optimised user experience. When you revisit a website, cookies also help the site to remember your preferences or registration details.
What cookies don't do is store any personal or confidential information about you.
Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies and "first party" cookies or "third party" cookies. Each type of cookies is described below.
A session cookie is stored temporarily in your browser. It will be deleted from your browser when it expires, or when the web browser is closed (whichever comes first).
A persistent cookie is a cookie that is not stored temporarily in your browser, but instead it is stored in your computer for a fixed period of time.
First party cookies are cookies set by a website visited by the user—the website displayed in the URL window.
Third party cookies are cookies set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website the cookie would be a third party cookie. At times we contract with independent research companies and/or third party statistical services to perform services for us and when this is the case these third parties may send you cookies. They may use the information they obtain from your use of their cookies for the information described under "Uses of Cookies."
