ShopStyle UK Limited ("ShopStyle," "we," or "us") makes this cookie notice ("Cookie Notice") available to explain how and when we use cookies and other similar tracking technologies on the shopstyle.co.uk website and other sites and applications that link to this Cookie Notice (collectively, "ShopStyle Services").

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are transferred to your computer or device that allow us, and third parties with whom we partner, to recognize your browser or device and transfer information about you and your use of the ShopStyle Services. Cookies are used to recognize visitors, enhance your shopping experience, personalize your experience if you return to the ShopStyle Services, and generally to improve the ShopStyle Services. We use cookies to enhance the online experience of our visitors and to better understand how the ShopStyle Services is used. Cookies may tell us whether you have visited the ShopStyle Services before or whether you are a new visitor.

What Types of Cookies Does ShopStyle Use?

ShopStyle uses first party cookies (which are cookies set directly by us) as well as cookies served by third parties on our behalf. Third party cookies are most commonly used for website analytics or advertising purposes. Some cookies only remain on your device while your browser is open (these cookies are known as 'session cookies'), while others remain for longer periods (these are known as 'permanent cookies'). Each cookie we use falls into one of the four categories:

Category

Description

Essential

These cookies are necessary to provide you some of the features of the ShopStyle Services, and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you, such as when you register or log into a ShopStyle Services, make a request for a specific functionality, set your privacy preferences, or log in or fill in forms. These cookies also enable us to support security features to help us detect malicious activities and violations of our terms and conditions.

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the ShopStyle Services may not work if you do not allow these cookies.

Functional

These cookies enable the ShopStyle Services to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. These cookies may collect your IP address and web browser information so we can determine what locale settings and stores to display. These cookies may also collect time spent on pages, links clicked, and conversion information and allow us to show you more relevant content. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages.

If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.

Performance

These cookies allow us to measure and improve the performance of our site. These cookies may count visits and traffic sources. These cookies allow us to know which pages you visited and the links you clicked. This information allows us to know how the ShopStyle Services are performing, what is most and least popular, and understand how visitors move around the ShopStyle Services. We may use this information to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including how you access the ShopStyle Services from different applications or devices.

If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when and how you have visited the ShopStyle Services, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

Targeting Advertising

These cookies may be set through the ShopStyle Services by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites to predict your preferences and to display you more relevant ads.

If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other similar technologies, such as tracking pixels. These are tiny graphic files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has used the ShopStyle Services. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Each browser is different, so you should check your browser's "Help" menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences. You should note that if you reject or block cookies from the ShopStyle Services, the ShopStyle Services may not function as intended. In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising.
