Cookie information for www.silentalert.ie
If you are just browsing the website no cookies will be used unless you use the shopping basket.
The only cookie we use is a single ‘session cookie’ to help the shopping cart remember what you want to purchase. This allows you to order multiple items in one go, otherwise you would only be able to order one item at a time. The cookie will record what you wish to order then pass the details on to paypal who will take payment.
Session Cookies are used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server’s pages. By default, web pages really don’t have any ‘memory’. Cookies can store ordering information needed to make shopping carts work instead of forcing the user to remember all the items the user put in the shopping cart. Similarly, Cookies tell the server what pages to show the user so the user doesn’t have to remember or start navigating the site all over again. Cookies act as a sort of ‘bookmark’ within the site.
The site will not collect any information about you, your personal details or anything like that. Also if you delete the contents of your shopping basket the cookie will be removed as well.
