Information Collected for Tracking and Customisation (Cookies)
A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to your computer to allow it to remember specific information about your session while you are connected. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the website that provided it, and no other website can request it. There are two types of cookies, session and persistent. Session cookies last only as long as your Web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for longer periods of time.

PocketGPSWorld websites may use session cookies for technical purposes such as to enable better navigation through the site, or to allow you to customise your preferences for interacting with the site. PocketGPSWorld also makes use of persistent cookies to remember you between visits so, for example, you can save your customised preference settings for future visits.

At no time is your private information, whether stored in persistent cookies or elsewhere, shared with third parties who have no right to that information. If you do not wish to have session or persistent cookies stored on your machine, you can turn them off in your browser. However, this may affect the functioning of some features of our website.
