2. Different types of cookies explained
Some cookies are deleted when you close down your browser. These are known as session cookies. Others remain on your device until they expire or you delete them from your cache. These are known as persistent cookies and these types enable us to remember things about you as a returning visitor.
Whether a cookie is a first or third party cookie depends on which website the cookie comes from. First party cookies are those set by or on behalf of Lands' End. Third party cookies are cookies that a third party places on your device through our website.
The main categories of cookies we use include:
Strictly necessary cookies
Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to receive a service on a website. For example, cookies to operate online shopping baskets, or to comply with the law (e.g., such as to keep your information safe). We would not be able to operate our website without using "strictly necessary" cookies.
These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. Any information collected by these cookies is anonymous. We only use such information to improve our website. They are used to remember your preferences for next time you visit the website. They are also used to collect information about the numbers of visitors per page, the average time spent on a particular page, whether visitors receive error messages on a particular page and to analyse shopping behaviour on the website. This information helps us to find out how well the website is working and highlights where it can be improved. For example, Google Analytics is used to provide us with data on website use.
Functionality cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your log in details) and customised preference settings (e.g., text size). They also enable enhanced, more personal features. These cookies are also used to provide services you have asked for (such as watching a video). Information collected by functionality cookies may or may not be anonymised, but they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. The functionality cookies on our website collect anonymous information.
Flash Cookies (or Locally Shared Objects)
Most computers these days have Adobe Flash installed. Websites that contain Flash can also store small files on your computer that are used in the same way as cookies. Flash cookies can also back up the data that is stored in other cookies. When you delete cookies, your Flash cookies are not affected. So a website may still recognise you if it backed up the deleted cookie information on a Flash cookie.
