Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser.

They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit through a ’session cookie’ or for multiple repeat visits using a ‘persistent cookie’. They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.

Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting, known as ‘first-party cookies; or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website, known as ‘third-party cookies’.

Cookies set by My Unitard

We intentionally use as few cookies as possible (and none are used for marketing or analytics purposes) – the only cookies we use are ones necessary for the operation of our website.

The following cookies are automatically set by our e-commerce software:

woocommerce_cart_hashsessionHelps us determine when your basket/cart contents/data changes. Not set until you add an item to your basket/cart.
woocommerce_items_in_cartsessionHelps us determine when basket/cart contents/data changes. Not set until you add an item to your basket/cart.
wp_woocommerce_session_2 daysContains a unique code for each customer so that the ecommerce software knows where to find the cart/basket data in the database for each customer.
woocommerce_recently_viewedsessionUsed to keep track of which products you have recently viewed.
store_notice[notice id]sessionAllows you to easily dismiss any notices we have on the site.

List of cookies set on the My Unitard e-commerce dancewear website

“Session” cookies automatically “expire” (or are deleted) when you close your web browser window. No personal information is stored within these cookies.

Our payment processors also set cookies for anti-fraud, security and processing your payment. These are not set until you see options to pay and are, again, necessary for the functionality of our site. The list of our payment processors and details of their privacy and cookie policies can be found on our privacy policy page.

Controlling Cookies

You may wish to restrict the use of cookies, or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behaviour such as the length of time they are stored — either through built-in functionality or by utilizing third party plugins.
