How We Use Cookies / Web analytics and statistics / User Anonymity

A 'cookie' is a small piece of data sent by our computer to yours so that information can be recalled. A cookie is stored by your web browser in a text file on your computer. Each time your web browser requests content from a server that has previously interacted with your machine the cookie's message is sent back. Cookies are passive and just used for transferring that anonymous information.

The law relating to cookies has recently changed. The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has issued guidance on the EU 'cookie' directive changes and Mary's of Enfield Ltd is in the process of assessing and updating its Privacy / Cookie Policy to reflect the requirements in the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011.

Session IDs:

Our online shop web server may create an essential session cookie called ASP.NET_SessionId ,which is essential for your use of some of the interative elements of the website, such as contact forms.  The cookie contains a session ID which is a mechanism for distinguishing your visit to our website from any other visitors that may be using the website at the same time. For more information you can read this technical article on the Microsoft website about Session IDs. This cookie expires when you leave our website.

We use PayPal to provide an online invoice payment facility. The PayPal and credit card logo images are loaded direct from PayPal's servers (this is regarded as best practice to ensure that card scheme logos are kept as up to date as possible) and in serving these images PayPal serves two cookies. The first cookie, "Apache", is a persistent cookie set to expire in 30 years' time. The second is a session cookie and is given a random name. We use PayPal as a convenience for our visitors and we use it on the basis that PayPal adheres to its Privacy Policy - see we use cookies for more information.

What we will not do with your personal data…
We will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others or disclose your personal details to any advertiser.

Security of Personal Data
When you place orders, as required by the UK Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given to us, to prevent unauthorised access. We may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you, due to our security procedures.
