Cookies

You may or may not have heard recently that there have been some small changes to the rules on how internet retailers and websites function involving the use of cookies and you may be wondering what cookies are and how this affects you.

As part of the new legislation and as a responsible retailer, it’s our duty to provide you with information on cookies and how we use them.

What are cookies?

I’m sure it doesn’t surprise you to learn that we aren’t actually talking about the tasty snacks that go well with milk, but rather a simple website technology that was first introduced in the 1990’s and has been a part of most websites ever since.

Cookies are a tiny text file that is stored on your computer when you visit various web pages. These text files do no harm whatsoever and carry no personal information at all but they allow a website server to communicate with your computer to enable website functions.

Cookies are a very common part of how all websites work and have many different uses such as remembering what items you have added to your shopping basket.

Why do we need cookies?

Cookies help internet browsers to navigate websites efficiently and without them, various parts of websites wouldn’t function and you wouldn’t be able to place an order with many internet retailers.

Cookies also tell us how people use our website, so that we can make sure things are working correctly and make improvements that make things better for our customers.

What different types of cookies are there and what do they do?

There are various types of cookies that function differently to one another. Cookies also only remain on your computer for a set amount of time and carry no personal information at all. Here is a little more detail on the different types of cookies, and what they do:

Session cookies – these cookies only last for a small amount of time and expire once you have closed your internet browser.

How we use session cookies:

Our website uses various session cookies to help you to navigate through the different pages of our website and to pay for your order securely. We also use them to remember your preferences, such as products that you have added to your basket or recently viewed. These cookies help you to use our website successfully and place your order with us.

Persistent cookies – these are cookies exist between browser sessions (when you close your internet browser and open a new one later on). Persistent cookies each have a set expiry date and last a little longer than session cookies.

What are first and third party cookies?

First party cookies are the ones that are created and used by the website you are on.

Third party cookies are those that have been created by one website but also used by another.

How we use third party cookies:

Website interactions – When you visit our website we monitor the pages that you visit and how you interact with them so we can make sure that things are running smoothly and also to make things work better.

Shopping engines – When you visit an internet shopping engine or price comparison website, a third party cookie is created on your computer to let us know where you came from and which products you clicked.

Banner advertisements – Through various partners when you visit other websites, we use third party cookies to show you banners containing products that you viewed to help you in your buying decision.

Google display – Using the Google advertising network when you visit other websites, we use third party cookies to remind you to order from us.

If you would like to opt out of this service, you may do so by following the instructions found here

E&OE

Channel Island VAT Exemptions

Products shipped to the Bailiwick of Guernsey and States of Jersey are not charged VAT.  This is because the Channel Islands aren’t part of the European Union with respect to VAT.

Our system records multiple addresses to a single account. If any address contains a valid GY or JE postcode, that address is marked as being ‘outside the VAT area’.

To qualify for VAT free shipping, it’s the delivery address, not the cardholder address, or invoice address which must have the JE or GY postcode. Channel Island residents shipping products to mainland addresses will be charged VAT.

When entering an order, if you’re not logged in, or you haven’t yet created a Channel Island delivery address, your shopping basket will show VAT. This will be removed at the checkout when the you do log in and your order is processed, recognising the Channel Island delivery address postcode.

Voucher Terms & Conditions

Please note that terms and conditons apply to all discount and gift vouchers which can normally be found on the email for the discount voucher that you have recieved. Please be aware that all vouchers and coupons exclude printers, cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer and are limited to one use per customer. Only one voucher may be redeemed per order. These terms apply to all vouchers unless otherwise stated.

We regularly offer Buy one get one half price vouchers and 4 for the price of 3 on compatible toner cartridges. Please note that if for any reason you would like to return one of the items that you purchased when you used this offer for a refund, we will calculate the refund based on what you would have paid without the discounted item. For example, if you bought 4 toners at £50 each and used the 4 for 3 offer, the order would total £150, if you returned one of the toners, then no refund would be due.
If you purchased 1 toner at £50 and 3 toners at £100 each (Total order with the offer would have been £300 / the £50 toner would have been free) and then you returned one of the £100 toners for a refund, you would have paid £250 had you not originally bought this toner, therefore you will get a refund of £50 rather than the full £100 of the toner you returned to us.
All voucher redemption codes / discount vouchers are offered on a discretionary basis. Netgiant.com reserves the right to cancel, remove or restrict the use of vouchers at any time.

How secure is buying over the web?

Whenever you enter any of your personal details and/or when you type your credit/switch card number into our site, our web site is in secure mode.

In layman’s terms this means that anyone “listening” to traffic en route will be able to make no sense of the number.

Our system the “Secure Socket Layer” works, every trading web company uses it. You will be able to tell if you are in secure mode when a little padlock appears bottom right of your screen or in Internet Explorer 7, the little padlock will be at the top of the screen, just to the right of the web page address.
