What About "Cookies"?

 

What is a "cookie"?
A "cookie" is a small text message that the web server asks permission to place on your web browser. The web server and web browser pass this text message back and forth to help improve the quality of your visit on our Website. For example, cookies keep track of the items in your shopping cart and which forms you’ve already filled out.

 

 

How does Copper State use "cookies"?

 

We use "cookies" to allow you to build an order over time, adding components throughout the day or over an extended period of time. Uncommitted orders will remain available until you remove them. We also use cookies to maintain a client/server connection or user "state" as you move between pages building an order.

 

How can I remove "cookies"?
"Cookies" can be removed or blocked from your device by adjusting the settings in most web browsers. However, the removal or prevention of cookies may result in lost functionality on our Website, including the loss of shopping cart information and auto filled forms.
