What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. In some cases, cookies can be used to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information when they are combined with other information.
First and third-party cookies
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, BrickLink) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third-party cookies enable third party features
We use first and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "Essential" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
Types of cookies we use
BrickLink uses three categories of cookies: “Essential,” “Analytics,” and “Functionality.” You can find out more about each cookie category below.
How long will cookies stay on my device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted. BrickLink uses both types of cookies, but most of Essential and Analytics cookies are session cookies.
How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. The Cookie Consent Banner can be found in the notification banner and on our website. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted.
