cookie policy

We do not currently use cookies that store personally identifiable information about you on arrowxl.co.uk. However, as with many other sites, we do use Google Analytics to track unique website visits, what website visitors came from and how long visitors stay on the site. In using the website, you consent to these session cookies being used for such purposes, unless you opt out using the instructions below.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's web browser. A cookie does not contain software programmes, spyware or viruses and most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience e.g. enabling that website to 'remember' you, either for the duration of your visit (using a 'session cookie') or for repeat visits (using a 'persistent cookie')

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF COOKIES?

A cookie contains information linked from a web browser (the user) to a specific web server (the website). If a web browser accesses that web server again, the web server can read the last information processed.  Cookies ensure a user-friendly experience and support safety efforts for many online offers and services, e.g. language preferences, privacy settings, shopping baskets on online shops, relevant adverts or in Arrow XL's case it remembers your parcel reference for your session.

WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?

A Session cookie: This stores session ID and parcel reference but it does NOT store personally identifiable data. This is used to save you typing the same information in again; it will also expire when the browser is closed. See a full list of all the cookies we use here.

Google analytics: This is to generate statistical information. The information is NOT personally identifiable; however if you want to opt out or remove the use of Google analytics visit here.

CAN I CONTROL COOKIES?

Yes, browsers offer cookie management settings usually found in the browsers tools option. Browsers can also enable users to delete specific cookies; it is even possible to set a browser to reject all cookies. However choosing to disable all cookies could significantly affect your web browsing experience as many Internet services rely on cookies.
