Cookies, IP Addresses, Pixel Tags & Tracking Technology
 
  • We use cookies. They are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognise your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

    We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors, such as Google.

    You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.

If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.

  • When you visit this Florence London Ltd. Site or view one of our emails, we may use pixel tags/tracking links and/or similar technology to note pages that you visit and action you take. We may also use this information for aggregate purposes.
 
  • Pixel tags and tracking links are lines of code embedded on various pages of our Site. The data collected by our use of pixel tags is anonymous, so we cannot find out anything about you apart from the page you have viewed on our own site.
 
  • We may use pixel tags in order to provide you with targeted re-marketing advertisements through the use of technology. The pixel tags that we place on the Site are used by the re-marketing software platforms in combination with a cookie that is set on your computer to track customer browsing habits and provide you with more relevant advertising based on this browsing. The aim of this is to better target interactive advertising and to improve the online experience for our customers.
