This information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Services, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes. We do not collect any sensitive data.

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookie are widely used by website owners in order to make their website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the owner (in this case, Sliced Ginger) are called “first party cookies.” Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies.” Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g., advertising, and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users through our website for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
The Types Of Cookies Used
Our website uses performance and functionality cookies. They are considered non-essential but greatly enhance the performance and functionality of the site. Without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.
Our website also uses analytic and customization cookies. These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our website is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our website for you.
Other Tacking Technologies
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time like web beacons. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enables us to recognize when someone has visited a website or opened an email including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third party website, to improve performance and to measure the success of campaigns. In many cases these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so by rejecting cookies will impair their functionality.
Third parties may serve on your computer or mobile device to serve through advertising through our website. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. They can accomplish this by using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details, or other details that directly identify you.
Other sites accessible through our site via links or otherwise have their own policies in regards to privacy. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third parties.
