Cookie Notice

The YMC website use “cookies”.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small data file stored by your web browser on your computer. It allows us to recognise your computer by associating the identification numbers in the cookie with other customer information you have provided to us.

That customer information is stored on our secured database. We use cookies to keep track of what you have in your basket and to remember you when you return to our site. They can also tell us which website you came to us from.

Types of cookies we use

There are two types of cookie that may be used during your visit to the YMC website:

Session cookies

When you visit our site, a “session” cookie will remember you and your preferences in temporary memory. They will not collect and store information or personally identify you. Session cookies are deleted when you close your browser.

Without session cookies, the site would forget which items you placed in your shopping bag and you wouldn’t be able to buy anything.

Persistent cookies

When you first visit the YMC site, you see it in a default form. Persistent cookies remember your preferences and behaviour and help us to personalise your shopping. Persistent cookies remain on your browser until they expire automatically after a set time period, unless you delete them yourself.

Types of cookies we use and why we use them

Purpose Type Why is it needed?
Checkout Persistent Remembers your location in the checkout process, what’s in your Shopping Bag, which currency you want to pay in, your delivery options choice and any other decisions you make in checkout. This cookie expires automatically after a set time period.
Login Session Remembers if you are logged in or logged out. This cookie is deleted when you close your browser.

Third party cookies

YMC partners with third party companies for marketing and advertising purposes. These cookies allow us to make more informed decisions about what our customers want from us. Third party companies may employ a mixture of both session and persistent cookies.

Any information that they collect is anonymous.
