Cookies / Privacy Policy

Silver b3 does not disclose buyers' information to third parties. Cookies are ONLY used on this shopping site to keep track of the contents of your shopping cart once you have selected an item, to store delivery addresses if the address book is used and to store your details if you select the 'Remember Me' Option during the check-out process.

Data collected by this site is only used to:
a. Take and fulfil customer orders
b. Administer and maintain the proper function of the site
c. Disclose ONLY delivery information to third-parties (Postal Services) which is necessary for goods delivery purposes.

By using this Website you agree to the use of cookies. You can choose to manage the cookies we use on this Website through your browser settings at any time. For more information about how to do this, and about cookies in general, please see below.


Please Note: Completely disabling cookies on your computer will prevent many websites from working correctly, and may mean that at best, you are prompted to re-enter information that would normally have been stored in a cookie, and at worst, prevent the 'Shopping Cart' on a retail site from functioning at all.


What are Cookies?

First, and contrary to popular belief, cookies are NOT programs. They don’t do anything at all. They are simple ’text files’ which you can read using the Notebook program on your own computer (PC). There are basically two types of Cookies used by this site: 'Session Cookies' - these expire when you close your browser and do not remain on your computer, and 'Persistent Cookies' - these are stored in the longer term on your computer. They are typically used to make sure the site remembers your preferences if you return. (Note: persistent cookies are set with expiration dates) .

How do they work?

When you visit a site that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie is downloaded onto your PC. The next time you visit that same site, your own PC checks to see if it has a cookie that is relevant (that is, one containing the site name) and sends the information contained in that cookie back to the site. The site then ’knows’ that you have been there before, and in some cases, tailors the page on the screen to take account of that fact.

The good thing about cookies...

On this site they are used to store data on what is in your ’shopping cart’, adding items as you click, and should you select the 'Remember Me' option during the check-out process they will store your delivery / invoice data on your PC, and you will not need to re-type your name / delivery details etc. every time you visit our site. Cookies are NOT used to store or save credit / debit card information.

The possibilities are endless, and generally the role of cookies is beneficial, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother - for no extra effort on your part. Without cookies, online shopping would be much harder if not near impossible. Most all 'Shopping Carts' need cookies to function properly.

..and the bad

The answer probably depends on how you feel about information about you being stored by your own PC. There is nothing especially secret or exceptional about the information gathered by cookies, but you may just dislike the idea of your name and address (data) etc.  being saved on your own computer.

When cookies first started to appear, there was controversy. Some people regarded them as inherently sneaky - your own PC was being used (without warning) to store personal information about you, which could then be used again if, and when you ever returned to the same site that originally created the cookie for you.
