1. What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files with information downloaded to and stored on your computer, mobile or tablet. Some are necessary for you to make full use of the website’s functionality, while others are used to enhance your user experience, facilitate navigation on the website, and to provide you with more personalised marketing content.

We also use web beacons, which are used to collect data for ad delivery analytics and for specific events such as a registration or making a purchase. A web beacon, also known as a tracking pixel, is a tiny image referenced by a line of HTML or a block of JavaScript code embedded into our web site.

First-party cookies are placed directly by Dustin or by a third party at Dustin’s request.

Third-party cookies are placed by a third party or by Dustin at the request of a third party such as our analytics or advertising service providers.
