When you browse or use our websites or apps (as well as certain third party websites with whom we have partnered), we (and our partners) use cookies and similar technologies  to collect information automatically from one or more of your devices associated with you (see below for more details regarding the use of cookies and similar technologies). We also use certain automated techniques and technologies to infer or generate additional information about you, for example by analyzing or predicting certain personal aspects such as your personal preferences or interests.


IP addresses: When your web browser or e-mail application requests a web page or e-mail from another computer on the Internet, it automatically gives that computer the address where it should send the information. This is called your computer's "IP address." (IP stands for "Internet protocol.") For most users accessing the Internet, the IP address will be different every time you log on. Many IP addresses are commonly associated with Internet service providers (ISPs), universities, or major corporations in specific regions or localities. We receive IP addresses from all users because this information is automatically reported by your browser each time you view a web page. IP addresses are generally recorded in files called “log files”.


Information we obtain from third parties: From time to time we partner with and use the services of various third parties to collect personal information about you from other legitimate third-party data sources. The types of sources include information from commercially and/or publicly available sources such as data aggregators, public databases, third-party social media platforms and other third-party websites with whom we have partnered.

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your device when you visit our website
  • Third-party cookies, served by a third party on our behalf when you visit our website and certain third-party websites with whom we have partnered

What Do We Use Cookies For

The cookies we use can be divided into four broad categories: (1) Strictly Necessary Cookies, (2) Performance Cookies, (3) Functionality Cookies, and (4) Targeting Cookies or Advertising Cookies. See below for more details regarding each of these categories of cookies.

Category 1: Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.

What type of Strictly Necessary Cookies do we use on our website?

Examples of Strictly Necessary Cookies we may use on this website include Content Management Cookies which are required by the site for the content management system to work and Template Preference Cookies which are necessary for mobile sites and enable the site to look and feel the way it is intended to.

Category 2: Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that directly identifies a visitor. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore becomes anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

What type of Performance Cookies do we use on our website?

We use Google Analytics services to help analyze use of the site. These analytical tools use cookies to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information which is then aggregated so that it does not identify any individuals. The information about your use of the website and your IP address is transmitted to Google and is used by us to evaluate visitors' use of the website, compile statistical reports on website activity and create a profile of aggregated visitors based on demographics and interests. We also use a tool called Google Display Network Impression Reporting to understand which adverts we place on other websites in the Google Display Network which help us attract visitors to our website.

Category 3: Functionality Cookies


These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your username, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.


What type of Functionality Cookies do we use on our website?


We may place a cookie to remember your preferences (Preference Cookie) so that you do not need to re-enter your details (country/age and language preferences) on our gateway page. This is not suitable if you share your computer with someone else. This cookie expires automatically after 12 months.


We may also use Session Cookies, which are temporary cookies that remember user choices regarding the site, and preferences you have selected during the session. These cookies are deleted as soon as you leave the site.


Category 4: Targeting Cookies or Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by third party advertising technology providers (such as advertising networks and other digital advertising platforms) with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization. 

What type of Targeting Cookies or Advertising Cookies do we use?

These cookies are used to deliver content that is more relevant to you and your interests based on your previous browsing across the web as well as keywords we may be able to gather from the URLs of webpages from which you accessed this website, your IP address and any search engine used to reach this website. Also, these cookies may be used to deliver targeted advertising to you (either within this website or when you visit third party websites, including third party social media platforms) or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. They stay on your computer unless you delete them and they remember that you have visited a website.

We may also use certain service providers to set cookies on our behalf via third party websites with whom we have partnered. These cookies enable us to analyze consumers’ visits to specific sections of those websites and collect certain information regarding purchases of our products from those websites. The types of information collected by such cookies may include: shopping cart information, what product pages have been viewed, whether a purchase of a Vintage State Apparel product has been made, which Vintage State Apparel products have been searched for.

Marketing cookies we use include Third Party Cookies set by Google and Facebook, whom we use for online interest-based advertising. We use also certain Facebook advertising tools (such as Facebook “pixel”) for online interest-based advertising purposes.  You can read Google’s and Facebook’s data privacy policies at google.com and facebook.com, respectively.

How do I opt out of cookie targeted advertising?

When you interact with our website, both we and certain third parties (such as our advertising networks, digital advertising partners and social media platforms) collect information about your online activities, over time and across third-party websites (such as on websites that serve our ads).  We may use such information to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. We also may obtain information for this purpose from third-party websites on which our ads are served.
