COOKIE POLICY

How We Use Cookies

The TOPO Collective Website (www.topocollective.com, or “Website”) may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize TOPO Collective pages, or register with TOPO Collective site or services, a cookie helps TOPO Collective to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same TOPO Collective website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the TOPO Collective features that you customized.

One purpose of cookies is to simplify the use of the Website. A cookie may save a user's login details for example, so the user does not need to login every time. Cookies, by themselves, do not provide us with your personal information.

Cookies may be either "persistent" or "temporary" (or "session") cookies. A persistent cookie retains user preferences for a particular Website allowing them to be used in future browsing sessions and remains valid until its set expiry date (unless previously deleted by the user). A temporary cookie expires at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Cookies are also used for statistical or marketing purposes, to determine how the Website is used, as well as to serve ads to you while you are on the Website. These cookies are provided by us as well as third parties (e.g., advertising partners). While we do not control or have access to the advertiser cookies we do permit them to be used on this Website to facilitate tailored advertising and to monitor patterns of buying specific goods or interest in - for example, holidays or hobbies. These cookies run advertisements tailored to users based on their online buying habits.

You have the ability 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. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the TOPO Collective services or websites you visit.
