These preferences include, but are not limited to, language information and home country. Each time you visit the site, the computer that runs our website reads the cookie from your computer and presents the site according to the data in the cookie, saving you the time it would normally take to set preferences.

- Technical data - each time you visit a page on our website, our website automatically records certain information - for example, the time of visit, the address of the page visited and any error messages you received while accessing the page. This data is recorded regardless of whether or not you registered or have cookies enabled.
We use background information purely for technical purposes. It helps us conduct website maintenance and allows us to troubleshoot technical problems. This information is not combined with any other forms of information we collect nor is it scanned to provide trend or demographic information.
- Data you explicitly provide Roxtons - this information is collected when you register with the website. Upon registering, you can choose to receive communications from us and also communications from selected third parties. Registration information is stored in our internal database system, which is accessed by our sales, accounting, and information systems staff. It is used solely to conduct business, and it is always handled discretely and in a manner which safeguards your privacy.
In order to conduct certain business transactions, Roxtons may also have to share explicit information with third parties to fulfil sales. While we will not knowingly share your information with a party that will compromise your privacy, we cannot be held responsible for a third party's management of your data.
We will also, from time to time , do promotions with specially selected business partners. During registration, you have the option to opt-out of third party sharing for marketing purposes. If you opt-out, you will not receive material or promotions from any third parties we have agreements with. Roxtons will not sell your information to third parties for any purpose.
In conducting business transactions, Roxtons will contact you by e-mail and/or telephone.
At certain times, Roxtons may also run contests or promotions that exist outside our normal contact channel. If you choose to participate in these contests or promotions, we will use your personal information to contact you regarding the promotion or contest you entered.
In addition, during registration, we provide you with the option to receive Roxtons marketing newsletters or to opt out of this service.
Data maintenance and security
Roxtons considers your data's security when we upgrade our technology. Old computers are recycled and their hard drives are always removed before they leave our offices and kept in secure storage.
We perform regular backups of our database systems and web servers, and we store monthly backups in a secure location. While we can not guarantee 100% security from unauthorized access, we take every reasonable effort to ensure that the data on our servers and on our backups remain safeguarded.
Maintenance of cookies is not under our control, as cookies are stored on your own computer. Most modern browsers have an option to remove cookies currently stored on your computer. Please see above for more information on cookies.
