Regarding the recent EU Cookie Legislation
Cookies are small files that may be placed by a web site on a users PC. They are used to store information that may be needed while browsing the site, or on a future visit. This may include personal data, or anonymous information such as previously visited pages or items stored in the shopping cart.
A recent (2011) change in EU regulations requires that consent must be obtained before using any cookie that is not strictly necessary for the functioning of the site. It is not yet clear how this will be interpreted in law.
Actinic desktop products currently use the following types of cookie:
Specifically excluded from the scope of the regulations:
ACTINIC_CART. Records the session file of the shopping cart.
Consent is obtained before use provided agreement to the Terms and Conditions is enforced in the checkout (the default setting), and the Terms and Conditions retain the default cookie statement:
ACTINIC_BUSINESS. The login digest for logged in customers.
ACTINIC_CONTACT. Checkout 'Remember Me' function stores contact information to avoid the need for re-entering for subsequent orders.
Necessary for the correct functioning of the associated elements of the site:
ACTINI_REFERER. Returns the customer to the last page visited after completion of the checkout.
LAST_SECTION_URL. Used by the Back link on the Product Page, to return the visitor to the correct Section Page.
ACTINIC_RECENT. Records the image filename(s) for the Recently Viewed Products list, if enabled.
CART_CONTENT. Stores the cart value and item count for the shopping cart summary.
None of these four stores personal data.
