Cookies are small files of letters and numbers that are stored on your computer or other devices. They are transferred between the Website’s server and your Internet browser to allow the Website to remember actions you’ve made. Cookies used by Tuffaloy do not collect any personal information about you, but may be linked to personal information that you provide to us through your interaction with the Website. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain (Internet location) from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. when does it expire), and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer system or files. Only the website that transferred a particular cookie to you can read, modify, or delete such cookie.
How to Disable Cookies
Two categories of cookie may be used during your visit to the Website: (1) Session Cookies, and (2) Persistent Cookies. Session cookies are deleted after each visit to the Website. For example, when you are browsing our Website, it will remember you for the duration of your visit, but the cookie will be removed from your computer as soon as you close down your Internet browser. Persistent cookies remember you for a set period of time, allowing previously viewed or ordered products to be displayed the next time you visit the Website while logged into your account. We use these types of cookies for the following purposes:
Essential: Essential cookies are cookies that must be enabled in order for the Website to function properly. These cookies cannot be disabled. In order for you to access our Website, Joomla creates a session cookie in your browser to collect your IP address in order to help protect against potential session hijacking attacks. The session cookie is destroyed once the session has expired or once you have exited your browser. Your IP address may be stored in log files that allow us to review information about our Website’s performance, including information related to core updates, invalid login attempts, unhandled errors, and development information.
Processes: Process cookies help make the website work and deliver services that the website visitor expects, like navigating around web pages or accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, the website cannot function properly.
Communication: We use MailChimp to communicate with you via email if you sign up for our newsletter or mailing list. MailChimp uses some passive tracking tools, like web beacons (defined below), to collect information about how you and other users interact with Tuffaloy’s emails, which helps us improve our communication with you. Our Website also uses LiveChat so that we or our service providers may communicate with you in live time via instant messaging. LiveChat uses some passive tracking tools to collect information about how you and other users interact with the LiveChat feature. The information collected using the LiveChat may be stored for up to three years.
Other Tracking Technologies:
- “Pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”). We use these small electronic files to compile aggregate statistics about Website usage and response rates. Pixel Tags allow us to count the number of users who have visited certain pages of the Website, to deliver branded services, and to help us determine the effectiveness of its promotional or advertising campaigns as well as the effectiveness of the Website itself. When Pixel Tags are used in HTML-formatted email messages, they can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.
- Referrers and your Internet Protocol (IP) Address. Referrers are small files containing information your web browser passes to our web server that references the URL which you used to access the Website. Your IP address is the number used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that you can receive data.
- Environmental variables. Environmental variables include, but are not limited to, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed the Website, the type of web browser, operating system, and platform your computer uses, the Internet address of the previous website you visited before entering the Website, the names of the pages you visit while at the Website, and the next Internet website you visit after leaving the Website.
