Cookie policy

The RE-Place website uses cookies. A cookie is a small file that the RE-Place website transfers to your device to allow it to remember specific information about your session while you are connected. This information is only used to make the RE-Place’s website more useful for you. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the RE-Place website, and no other website can request it.

There are two types of cookies, session and persistent. Session cookies last only as long as your Web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies are stored on your device and remain valid until their set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date. The RE-Place website uses both session and persistent cookies.

Cookies may be set either by the website (first party cookies), or by a third party website (third party cookies). The names of the cookies that the RE-Place website uses, and the purposes for which they are used, are set out below.
