What are cookies?
When visiting our website, we would like to use "cookies" and other tracking technologies which record information and data automatically.
"Cookies" are small text files stored on your "browser" on your computer's hard drive, which collect basic information, but not personally identifying information, that a website can use to recognize repeat site visits. Cookies send information stored on them back to our webserver when you access our website.
Cookies enable SAFC to provide features such as remembering your address, so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you use the website. Cookies do not attach to your system or damage your files.
Cookies allow us to automatically identify you so that we can identify the items you wish to purchase, and to identify where the order is to be delivered. When you Login or press 'Add to Basket' or on the item page your computer will automatically be issued with a Cookie.
You can set your browser either to reject all cookies, to only allow “trusted” sites to set them, or to accept only those cookies from those websites which you are currently on.
However, please note – if you do delete all your cookies, some features of our website, such as remembering your login details or allowing you to place an order, will not function as a result.
safcstore.com sends cookies from this website in order to provide persistent session management and only monitors the IP addresses of visitors to assess which pages are the most popular. These IP addresses are not linked to any personal data so that visitors to our website remain anonymous.
Cookies can be deleted from your hard drive if you wish. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. You can usually change your browser so that it will not accept cookies. If you do this, you will still be able to browse around the site and use most of the features on the website but the functions that allow you to add items to your trolley, set up a new account or access an existing account will not be available. Alternatively, you can adjust your browser to tell you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer. How you adjust your browser to stop it accepting cookies or to notify you of them will depend on the type of internet browser programme, which your computer uses.
If your computer uses Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, you will need to follow these instructions at this link www.allaboutcookies.org (SAFC is not responsible for the content of external websites.)
Go to the heading "Manage Cookies". Click onto the option you prefer, either stopping cookies being installed or notifying you of them. From the list provided, click onto the programme, which your computer uses. If this is not shown on the list, click on the "help" heading on the bar at the top of this page, search for information on "cookies" - an explanation of how to delete cookies will appear, then follow those instructions.
If we cannot use such technology it is possible that certain functionality or 'personalised' services of this site might be affected and you might not be able to access certain Webpages. This information does not identify you personally.

Third party advertising cookies
Some of the advertisements you see on this site are generated by third parties. Some of these third parties generate their own "anonymous cookies", for the same reasons we do: to track how many unique users have seen a particular ad, and how many times they have seen it.
These third party cookies cannot be used to identify an individual user, but only for statistical purposes, for example, in providing you with advertisements that are more relevant to your interests. Additionally, the companies that generate these cookies have their own, very strict, privacy policies but we don't have access to these cookies; other than allowing them to be served, we have no role to play in these cookies at all (although we may use statistical information arising from these third party cookies and provided to us by third parties, to improve the targeting of advertisements to users).
Consent to cookies
In using this website, and by submitting your information, you consent to the collection, storage and use of your personal information by us as set out in this Policy.
If you do not agree, please leave this website now.
