Cookie technology helps displaying relevant information for you

Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer as an ‘Internet user's identification card’. By placing a cookie, our website will know when you have returned. This enables the site to bring up information relevant to you, for example your name, past orders, products you looked at, etc. and makes your shopping experience on our website easier

Cookies make the interaction between you and our website faster and more convenient. Without cookies, you would not be able to fill a shopping basket or you would have to fill in all of your details each time you open an order page and want to buy again. The London Mint Office website uses cookies to let you move from one part of the web site to another and to add coins to the shopping basket without having to login repeatedly.

We also use cookies to register which of our products you are interested in. We may use this to understand what most appeals to you so we can make our offers as appropriate as possible and show you coins that are relevant to you and your collection. Browsing behaviour may also be used to create relevant advertising on websites with product recommendations that relate to the items you viewed on our website. Cookies are always anonymized and only used to pick relevant information for a group of customers. We also use browsing behaviour data to create personal product recommendations on our website, our marketing emails and our printed offers.

Cookies are not computer programs, and can't read other information saved on your hard drive. They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user's email address etc. They only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to that website. It is possible to opt out of cookies via your browser’s cookie settings, but if you do this you will not be able to shop from most websites as many functions depend on cookies. Cookies are computer specific, so if you log on to any site from a different computer, the cookie settings on that computer will apply and your shopping experience might be less convenient as a consequence.

The cookies we currently use are as follows:

- Google Analytics (__utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmz): these cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. The information includes the time of the current visit, whether you have been to the site before and what site referred you here. We use this information to estimate our audience size and usage pattern, so that we can improve our site by understanding how people use it.

- [v1v4, v2v4 and v3v4]: this cookie is used to identify you when you are using our site, so that we can provide you with details of offers and services that may be of particular interest to you, either by means of information displayed on our site while you are using it, or by contacting you in accordance with your stated contact preferences.

[Please note that our advertisers may also use cookies, over which we have no control.]

If you register with us or if you continue to use our site, you agree to our use of cookies. However, you can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. Please note that by using your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon you visit our site.

How anonymous data is used over the Internet

We use a third-party service provider to advertise on our behalf across the Internet.  When you visit our website because you have seen one of these ads, they may collect anonymous information about your visits to our Web site, and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other Web sites to target advertisements for goods and services. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a pixel tag, which is industry standard technology used by most major web sites. No personally identifiable information is collected or used in this process. They do not know the name, phone number, address, email address, or any personally identifying information about the user. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this anonymous information used by our third party service provider, please visit our third party service provider’s website.
