The Deckers family of product lines (UGG®, I HEART UGG®, Teva®, Sanuk®, Hoka ONE ONE®, and Ahnu®) and accompanying domestic websites (uggaustralia.com, iheartugg.com, teva.com, sanuk.com, hokaoneone.com, and ahnu.com) and international websites takes the protection and proper use of your personal information seriously. We respect your privacy and take great care to safeguard information in our possession. Your preferences with regard to how we use your information are our highest priority. Below you will find our Cookies Policy. It explains generally what cookies are, what cookies we use, and what we use them for.
What Are Cookies?
Cookies (or similar tracking technologies designed for mobile devices) are simple text files stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit certain web pages. A cookie records basic information about your visit, such as your user settings or what pages you have viewed. The website (and potentially other websites) can then recognise this information in future and can use it to improve your overall experience, for example, by remembering your log-in details, preferences or even recommending certain content.
There are four principle types of cookie, which perform different functions. The main types are:
- Essential cookies
- Performance cookies
Performance cookies collect information about how a website is used in order to improve the website's effectiveness. Also known as 'analytical' cookies, performance cookies track information such as, which parts of the website have been visited, what links have been clicked and if any errors have occurred. Performance cookies are commonly used to ensure that popular content is displayed more prominently on a website so that users can find the information that they are looking for more quickly.
- Functionality cookies
As the name suggests, 'functionality' cookies are used to deliver specific features or functions on a website. The most common use of functionality cookies is to remember preference settings, or to store log-in details. For example to save you the trouble of inputting your username every time you access a site.
- Targetting cookies
'Targeting' cookies may be placed by us, or by our advertisers, to store information about the webpages that you have viewed. This allows us and our advertisers to deliver adverts that are relevant to the content you are interested in. These adverts may be displayed on our website or on other sites that you visit.
Targeting cookies are also used to operate 'Like' or 'Share' buttons, which users can click to let other people know that they have found a particular webpage useful or entertaining. Other sites (normally social networking sites) will then recognise these cookies and display your shared content to other users.
How Long Do Cookies Last?
Cookies may stay on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time depending on what they are used for.
Many cookies will only last for the duration of a single visit and will be automatically deleted when the browser is closed down. These cookies are known as 'session' cookies. Some cookies (known as 'Persistent' cookies) do remain on your device between sessions and allow us to authenticate you and to remember your preferences.
Deckers does not store personally identifiable information such as credit card details in cookies we create, but we do use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the Deckers family of websites.
