What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small snippet of text that a website asks your browser to store. All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser. Cookies can be removed in two ways: automatically, when they expire, or when you manually delete them. We’ve included more details below to help you understand what kinds of cookies we use.

Does amerisack.com use cookies?

Yes, with the primary purpose to make our website work more effectively.

What are session and persistent cookies?

Session cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. An example of how we use session cookies is to grant access to content and enable commenting (things you have to log in to do).

Persistent cookies – these usually have an expiration date far into the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. An example of how we use persistent cookies is for functionalities like the “Stay logged in” tickbox. We also use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the site for our customers. This information is anonymised – when we look at the data, in other words, we look at patterns, but we do not see individuals’ personally identified information (PII).

In what circumstances does amerisack.com use cookies, and why?

We use different kinds of cookies for various reasons outlined below. All cookie information is completely anonymised ie we do not see individuals’ PII.

There are no third-party cookies on the site.

Alternatively, whilst we are not responsible for the content of any external websites, we set out some websites below which may help if you wish to delete or opt-out of cookies.

Will the site work if I disable cookies?

You can browse amerisack.com with cookies disabled, though some interactions may not work. For example, ticking the “Stay logged in” box at login will not actually keep you logged in to the site unless you have enabled cookies.

How long will cookies last for?

We limit the lifetime of our cookies to 12 months and so you will be asked about your cookie preferences again no later than 12 months since the last time we asked you. You can of course opt-out of cookies and update your consent at any time during your experience through our cookie preference tool. If you do not opt-out of cookies or subsequently update your consent, and continue to use our sites, you consent to the use of cookies as described. If you choose to opt-out of cookies or remove your consent subsequently, we will necessarily have to ask you about your cookie preferences when you use our sites. The pop-up message will therefore reappear more regularly. For further detail please see the “Why does the message explaining cookies keep appearing?” section below.

Why does the message explaining cookies keep appearing?

A pop-up message will appear the first time someone visits our site to notify them of our use of cookies and how to change preference. There is a 20 second timer on this after which the pop-up will disappear. If you continue to get this pop-up then you most likely have cookies disabled or you have opted out of functional cookies. We use a persistent cookie to remember your preferences, but this only works when cookies on our site are enabled and functional cookies are allowed.
