Cookie Policy

Effective Date: 7 May 2021

Please read this policy carefully together with our Privacy Notice as it contains important information on who we are and how we use cookies on our website.

We may change this policy from time to time, when we do we will inform you via email or an updated banner on the website.

Our Website

This website is operated by Pangaia Materials Science Limited. Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and it also allows us to improve our site.

This cookie policy only relates to your use of our website to browse and purchase our products.

Throughout our website we may link to other websites owned and operated by certain trusted third parties to make additional products and services available to you. These other third party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate policies. For privacy information relating to these other third party websites, please consult their policies as appropriate.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.

There are three main types of cookies:

  • Session cookies: specific to a particular visit and limited to sending session identifiers (random numbers generated by the server) so you don't have to re-enter information when you navigate to a new page or check out. Session cookies are not permanently stored on your device and are deleted when the browser closes;
  • Persistent cookies: record information about your preferences and are stored in your browser cache or mobile device; and
  • Third party cookies: placed by someone other than us which may gather data across multiple websites or sessions.

We describe our use of cookies, including a detailed list of your information which we and others may collect through cookies, below.

For further information on cookies generally, including how to control and manage them, visit the guidance on cookies published by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.

Consent to use cookies and changing settings

We will ask for your consent to place cookies or other similar technologies on your device, except where they are essential for us to provide you with a service that you have requested (e.g. to enable you to put items in your shopping basket and use our check-out process).

You can withdraw any consent to the use of cookies or manage any other cookie preferences by clicking on the [insert details] icon at the bottom of any page on our site. You can then [insert details, e.g. explain how to adjust sliders or untick boxes as appropriate to the mechanism]. It may be necessary to refresh the page for the updated settings to take effect.

We use cookies for general purposes

Strictly necessary (essential) cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.

Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. These cookies are sometimes placed by third party providers of web traffic and analysis services.

Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

Targeting cookies. These cookies collect information about your browsing habits and inferred interests to make advertising more relevant to you. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert as well as to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. These cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks. They remember the other websites you visit and this information is shared with third party organisations, for example advertisers.

When you visit other websites you may see an advertisement for Pangaia because you visited our website. You may opt-out of network advertising programs that track your activities across multiple websites to deliver personalised advertising content to you.
