What are cookies?
A Cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website, when you use the website or when you return to the website. This helps us to provide you with a better experience during your visit and also allows us to improve our site. Cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and see how visitors interact with the site. This enables us to ensure that users are finding the information that they are looking for more effectively.
The cookies used and the information held within them have NO personal information and cannot be used to identify you as a person.
We also work with reputable third parties who advertise our products on their websites. You may have found us today by clicking on such a link. We allow these websites to place a tracking cookie so that we can count the number of sales that they have provided us with. These cookies hold NO personal data.
- Functional cookies remember things like your user name and personalise other features. They are commonly used to improve your experience by remembering login details and settings, so you don’t need to re-enter them each time you visit our site.
- Performance and analytics cookies are used to gather information about how visitors use our website. We do this purely to improve the experience of using our website and the data is always anonymised.

Some cookies are persistent and some are session cookies:
- Session cookies are stored in the computer’s memory for the duration of a user’s browsing session and are automatically deleted from the user’s computer when the browser is closed. These cookies are there to allow the user to move from page to page within a website without having to log-in repeatedly. Session cookies are never written on your hard drive and they do not collect any information from your computer. They also expire after a specified length of time – typically 20 minutes after the user has left a website
- Persistent Cookies will remain on your machine after you have left the Emerald website. They expire after a certain amount of time but can be deleted manually at any time, using your browser.
Emerald Life asks you to accept the use of a cookie when you visit our website for the first time. But of course it is not mandatory and if you don’t want to that’s absolutely fine by us. However, this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website and could prevent you from completing some purchases through our site.
