The cookie will be stored on your computer's hard drive until you remove it. You can have your browser notify you of, or automatically reject, cookies. Rejecting our cookies will disable the Coremetrics cookies (described below) as well. If you reject our cookies, you may still use the Jo Malone™ UK Site, but you may be limited in the use of some of the features.

We may also use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the Jo Malone™ UK Site, track traffic patterns, and gather demographic information for aggregate use, as well as in combination with your personally identifiable information for credit fraud protection and risk reduction.

When you visit this Jo Malone™ UK Site or view one of our emails, we may use pixel tags (also called "clear" gifs), tracking links and/or similar technology to note some of the pages you visit on our Jo Malone™ UK Site and personalise your experience. We may also use pixel tags to determine what types of email your browser supports.

The aim of this is to better target interactive advertising and to enhance the online experience for our customers. The data that we share with Google for these purposes is anonymised data. We do not share your personal data with Google. If you reject the Google cookie, you will prevent such pixel tags from relaying this anonymised information about you and this may limit your use of some of our Site features. If you do not wish your online behaviour to be tracked in this manner, please visit the following website for more information and to opt-out if you so wish: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html. Please be advised that we are not responsible for the Google remarketing scheme or Google’s privacy practices.
