What are cookies?

A cookie is a small data file that asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. When you enter the Siccaro site and agree to cookies, the website applications can tailor operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. Generally they help your experience as a customer so that we know what items are in your shopping basket or remember information about your experience on our site. Cookies do this by storing or tracking information about what you do whilst on the Siccaro site. Some cookies are stored only for the duration of your visit on our site. Others will be stored longer and will be remembered if you return so that your preferences are remembered.

We use cookies for:

• remembering that you have visited us before; this means we can identify the number of unique visitors we receive. It also allows us to make sure we have enough capacity for the number of users that we get;

• customising elements of the promotional layout and/or content of the pages of the Siccaro site;

• collect anonymous statistical information about how you use the Siccaro website (including how long you spend on the Siccaro site) and where you have come to the Siccaro from such as advertisements or other websites, so that we can improve the Siccaro site and learn which parts of the Siccaro site are most popular with visitors; and

• collect information about the pages on the Siccaro site that you view, and also other information about other websites that you visit, so that we can place you in a “market segment”. This information includes information about the township or city you are in, together with the name of your internet service provider. This information is then used to place interest-based advertisements on the Siccaro site which it is believed will be relevant to your market segment. For more information about this type of interest based advertising, and about how to turn this feature off please visit

External Companies We Work With

Siccaro engages with external digital marketing partner companies to attract new customers and through Google Adwords to return to our site. Sometimes a cookie will be set to your computer if you have reached the Siccaro site by clicking a Google Adword advertisement via a Google search or Youtube Video.

In order to track where new customers come from, the digital marketing partner companies provide us with technology such as smart pixels or GIFs. That technology works by recognising a cookie on your web browser, so that our website can identify which advert brought you to the site. The technology is not able to identify any of our customers’ personal details.

From time to time Siccaro also works with digital marketing partner companies to advertise to Siccaro customers when they are on other websites. These advertising mechanics use cookies. The adverts may be personalised to an individual customer, but the technology is not able to identify any customer personal details. Third-party web analytics software allows Siccaro to measure statistics relating to customer usage of the website. Cookies used by the Siccaro site are set by us, and some are set by third parties who are delivering services on our behalf, as mentioned above.
