Brownells UK Cookie Policy. Due to a change in EU law on 26th May 2012 we have to display the following information. 

Nothing has changed in any way with how we store data or how the site operates, but we are now obliged to give the following information.

Please read the following info on cookies with care, as your continuing use of this website means that you agree with the way this site utilises cookies in support of your browsing and shopping experience. 99% of all online shops operate this way and it is known as implied consent. If you choose to continue using this website with your browser set to accept cookies we will assume that you wish to access the content and features offered through this site and that you consent to the use of cookies as described below and as implemented through our e-Shop. If this is not the case then you should leave this site or continue with cookies disabled in your browser. However we would advise that this will result in reduced access and functionality.

The information below is a quick guide to cookies and describes how this site uses cookies and also provides you with guidance on how to modify your browser settings to control your browser’s use of cookies.

What are cookies? A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is usually a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. When the user browses the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user's previous activity. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember the state of the website or activity the user had taken in the past. This can include clicking particular buttons, logging in, or a record of which pages were visited by the user. Other kinds of cookies perform essential functions in the modern Web. Perhaps most importantly, authentication cookies are the most common method used by web servers to know whether the user is logged in or not, and which account they are logged in under. Without such a mechanism, the site would not know whether to send a page full of sensitive information, or a message saying "sorry, you need to log in".
