Privacy & Cookies
What are cookies?
First-party and third-party cookies
A first-party cookie is one that is set by the website you are visiting, whereas a third-party cookie is one that is set by a website that may be providing content to the website you are visiting (for example, if you watch an embedded YouTube video on a website you are visiting, you may find that YouTube sets its own cookie). Remember that a website can only read its own cookies, so any third party websites cannot read the cookies set by the website you are visiting. Equally, the website you are visiting cannot read any cookies set by third party websites.
These cookies are set by bouxavenue.com and can be read only by bouxavenue.com.
|ASP.NET_SessionId||This cookie allows our web servers to respond to your actions on the website such as "Add to bag" or browsing the website. Without it, the website wouldn’t know if one person or lots of different people were clicking through pages of the site meaning no one would be able to login or buy anything.|
|PHPSESSID||This cookie is very similar to ASP.NET_SessionId cookie above but is set if you browse certain pages on bouxavenue.com that are powered by Wordpress (e.g. Miss B’s blog).|
|size||This cookie is used to remember your size preferences. When you choose your size to add an item to your bag or when you save your size preferences in your VIP account, the sizes are saved in the cookie. The website then pre-selects your size when you view other products so you don’t have to keep doing it. |
|viewedproducts||This cookie is used to show you your recently viewed items when you’re browsing our range so it’s easier for you to get back to something you’ve already looked at. You can always use the cross on each item (or the clear all button) to hide these.|
|Login||This cookie is set only if you select ‘Keep me signed in’ when you sign in to your VIP account. The cookie stores your VIP account email address and a securely encrypted version of your password (i.e. if anyone did get hold of your computer and found this cookie, they would not be able to get your password). To keep your account secure, you should never select ‘Keep me signed in’ on a public or shared computer.|
|__utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmz||These cookies are set by a website analytics package we use called Google Analytics.

|Cookies beginning with comment_author, comment_author_email, comment_author_url||These cookies are set by our Wordpress blogging platform when you leave a comment on Miss B’s blog. This is for your convenience so that you won’t have to retype your information again when you want to leave another comment.|
