Cookie and Privacy Information

This privacy policy sets out how Green Witch Telescopes & Binoculars uses and protects any information that you give Green Witch Telescopes & Binoculars when you use this website.

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. We are fully PCI compliant and the website is SSL Certified using Thawte's SSL123 encryption meaning that when an order is placed on our website, credit card numbers are encrypted with the latest secure 256-bit technology. 

We also do not store  payment details on the website.

 

Cookies

Our website uses cookies but only sparingly and there are only two cookies that are created by the e-commerce system:

  • PHPSESSID (Contains a PHP "session ID", expires when the browser is closed)

The "PHPSESSID" cookie is required so that the site can recognise the same user clicking from page to page. Without it, every page would be treated as the first visit to the site, and anything added to the shopping basket would be instantly forgotten. Online shopping would, therefore, be impossible.

  • session (Contains a PHP "session ID", can also contain an email address and encrypted password, expires after one year)

The "session" cookie is intended for the user's convenience, and the ecommerce system creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so that they can be classed as "returning" and the contents of their shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details are are also saved so that they can remain logged in when returning (the password is encrypted). If the user signs out, their login details are removed from the cookie.

Any other cookies are created by 3rd party scripts such as Google Analytics.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
