Cookie Policy

This Week in Digital Health “TWIDH” uses cookies so that we can provide you with the best user experience possible. Cookie information is stored in your browser and performs functions such as recognizing you when you return to our website and helping our team to understand which sections of the website you find most interesting and useful.

What Are Cookies and Do We Use Them?

A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a Web site that may be saved on your hard disk by your computer’s browser. It holds information a site may need to interact with you and personalize your experience. At TWIDH, we use two kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies.  Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. Once you exit your browser, they go away. We use session cookies to maintain information we need to have in order for you to shop at TWIDH. For example, the Session ID cookie that we ask your browser to hold retains the ID for your shopping bag. Without the Session ID cookie, you can’t add merchandise to your bag and carry it to Checkout.

Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit; they do not go away when you exit your browser. At TWIDH, you may choose to accept a persistent cookie to give you a more personalized shopping experience and to help you navigate our store more efficiently. We use your information to enhance your site experience. However, you can use our site without accepting a persistent cookie. To do so, you should set your browser options to reject persistent cookies. Alternatively, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which gives you the opportunity to decide whether you want to accept it or not.

Cookies can be used by a Web site to recognize you. But that does not necessarily mean any personal information is stored in the cookies. At TWIDH, we store no personal information about you in the cookies. Anything you choose to tell us about yourself (such as your name, address, or payment information) is stored safely and separately on our secured servers, and you need to provide a password to access it.

We also use cookies to look at how groups, rather than individuals, use our Web site. In our physical store, we can observe which aisles and departments are most heavily trafficked and determine what displays or sales are the most successful. Then, we can identify ways to improve the customer experience. On the Web, cookies help us develop a similar understanding so that we can continue to improve the arrangement, product offerings, and merchandise placement you see at TWIDH.

We may use your information in a number of ways, including the following:

  • To improve the content on our Web site. For example, we may use log files to find out which parts of our site or our products are visited most often.
  • To enhance your online experience. For example, we may use it to recognize you and welcome you to the site.
  • For marketing and promotional purposes. For example, we send out emails to our customers about products or events that we think may be of interest to them. Marketing and promotional emails will only be sent to those individuals who have opted into receiving email.
  • We also may send you offers for discounts or free services (e.g., free gift wrap or shipping) on our site.
