Strictly Necessary Cookies
‘Cookies’ are set to help support the structure of the pages that are displayed to you. These help the website to function and enhance the look and feel of the website. They can also help to improve navigation around our website and allow you to return to pages you have previously visited. This type of ‘cookie’ only lasts for the duration of the time you are visiting the website. When you leave the website they are deleted automatically. These cookies are commonly known as ‘Session Cookies’.
In the event that you register for an online account with us (https://shop.minco.com/login.aspx), we may use ‘cookies’ to make accessing the website more convenient. This information would allow us to welcome you by name, and over time to personalize our website content to reflect your preferences. For security reasons, you will still need to enter your password. Where features require secure access, our ‘cookies’ are used to store basic information, like your user identifier. They do not store password or credit card information. Our ‘cookie’ will remain on your hard drive until you choose to clear it. If you choose to do this, you will need to enter your details each time you visit the site.

This will apply to all websites once ‘cookies’ are disabled via your browser settings and not only Minco websites.
