What are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent before we place any cookies on your device that are not strictly necessary for the functioning of our Websites.
Cookies set by the website owner Jacqueline & Edward Ltd are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Our first party cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other first and third party cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites. Third parties also serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
The types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described below.
