LINTON USES COOKIES

This site, like many others, uses small files called “cookies” to help customise your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.

This page contains information on what 'cookies' are, the cookies used by Linton Group, how to switch cookies off in your browser, and some useful links for further information.

WHAT ARE 'COOKIES'? 

'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. Your devices are able to read and write these files, allowing them to store things such as personalisation details or user preferences. Each web domain can only access cookies stored by that specific web domain, meaning that only Linton Group servers can access the cookies. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains. Therefore when you visit Linton Group, your browser may receive cookies from several sources.

HOW DOES LINTON GROUP USE COOKIES? 

A visit to a page on Linton Group may generate the following types of cookie:

1. Anonymous analytics cookies
2. Registration cookies
3. Cookies to help with generating an application recommendation
4. Anonymous analytics cookies

Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you've visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. These cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. This allows us, for example, to tell which pages are the most visited at any one time.

REGISTRATION COOKIES 

When you register with the Linton Group, we generate cookies that signal whether you are signed in or not.

Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service.

While you are signed in, we combine information from your registration cookies with analytics cookies, which we could use to identify which pages you have seen on the website as a user.

HOW DO I TURN COOKIES OFF?

It is possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, you may find that some aspects of Linton Group will stop working or work less well if you do this. (For example, we cannot provide you with an application recommendation, so you would not be able to see what products would be suitable for use on your vehicle.)

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser. In order to understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the 'Help' option in your browser for more details.

Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
Cookie settings in Firefox
Cookie settings in Chrome
Cookie settings in Safari

We do not recommend turning cookies off when visiting Linton Group, as this will prevent you from obtaining an application recommendation or, if you are a registered user, being able to log into your account.

If you are primarily concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off by going to the Your Online choices.
