This Cookie Policy explains how BrickLink Limited ("BrickLink") uses cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites at, ("Websites"). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

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 or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

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.

  1. Essential Cookies These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.
  2. Analytics Cookies These cookies collect collective information about the usage of the Websites to help us understand how our Websites are being used, how successful our new marketing campaigns are, or how effective our new features are. We use the collected information to enhance the performance and improve the user experience of the Websites. These cookies collect only anonymous data and always used in aggregated form, and they are not used to track your browsing activity on other websites.
  3. Functionality Cookies These cookies improve the usability and functionality of our Websites by allowing us to remember your personal preferences and help us customize our Websites for you. These cookies are non-essential to use, but certain functionality (like browsing history or background color settings) may become unavailable without them.

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.
