Cookies and Web Beacons
We may also use third party advertisements on shedstore.co.uk. Some of these advertisers use technology such as cookies and web beacons when advertising on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) data including IP addresses, ISPs, the browser used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether the visitor has Flash installed. This is normally used for geotargeting purposes (for example, showing London hairdresser ads to someone that lives in London) or showing specific ads based on previous sites visited (for example, showing jewellery ads to someone who frequently visits jewellery related websites).
DoubleClick DART Cookies
We may also use DART cookies for ads serving through Google's DoubleClick service, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site that uses DoubleClick advertising (including some Google AdSense advertisements). This cookie is used to display ads specific to you and your interests based on your previous activity ("interest based targeting"). The ads served will reflect your browsing history (For example, if you have been visiting sites about visiting Paris, you may see Paris hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about tennis). DART uses "non personally identifiable information". It does NOT track your personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, email addresses or bank details. If you wish to opt-out of this type of ad serving, visit www.doubleclick.com/privacy/dart_adserving.aspx
Using your browser settings you can either disable or selectively switch off our cookies or other third-party cookies, or by modifying your preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this may limit interaction with our site as well as other websites. For example, you may be unable to login to some of our services or programs, such as forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies will not permanently opt you out of any advertising program. Unless you set up your browser to disallow cookies, a new cookie will be added to your computer the next time you visit a site running the advertisements.
