Cookies have been a part of the internet for a long time. They are tiny files that live on your computer and help your web browser interact with the websites that you visit in order to give you the best and fastest user experience possible. That is what we use them for at Vida Moda as we are only interested in making sure we can give you the best service possible and we use as few cookies as possible.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computing device by the website you are visiting and only that website will then be able to read the contents of that cookie. Each Cookie you get will be unique to the web browser on your computing device. In the case of our web site (and most eCommerce web sites) it helps our site remember what is in your shopping basket when you move between pages. Each time you move to a new page on a shopping web site the website reloads in your browser and without a cookie your shopping basket would empty each time you moved to a different page on the same web site.
We use two types of cookies on Vida Moda.
Vida Moda does NOT store your payment details. All payments are handled by two seperate secure payment services, we use paypal and SagePay. This means that everytime you buy somethign from us you'll have to re-enter your card details. That may be a little inconvenient and we apologise for that but we think it is the best way amd most secure way to handle payments.
Our information relationship is with you and you alone. We never sell or disclose any information we collect via cookies or any other method to any third party, although apparently the Goverment are allowed to ask us for information if they so choose.
No, we keep it as simple as we can and don't believe in making things more complicated than they need to be.
Yes you can (inside the settings in your web Browser) but please bear in mind that our web site and many others will then not work properly for you. By and large you won't be able to buy anything via the internet if you turn cookies off.
There are lots of sources of information on the internet to help you manage cookies. The help function in your web browser is the best place to start. You can simply Google the phrase "manage cookies" and take your pick from the results. You can visit the following web site for more information to help you manage cookies in your browser. http://www.aboutcookies.org/
