This cookie policy (“Cookie Policy”) applies to the websites operated by or otherwise provided to you by The Flannel Store. (Respectively, the “Site/s”, and “TFS.”, “us” or “we” or "Our"). By accessing and using the Site, you consent to the use of cookies, as described in this Policy. This information is collected by cookies and other similar technologies, such as web beacons. When we refer to “cookies”, we mean all of these.

We expressly reserve the right to modify this Policy from time to time. If there are any material changes to this Cookie Policy, you will be notified via the Site/s. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. Your continued use of the Site constitutes your agreement to be bound by such changes to this Policy. Your only remedy, if you do not accept the terms of this Policy, is to discontinue use of the Site or to refuse accepting cookies by using your browser’s settings.

This Cookie Policy is an integral part of our Privacy Policy and terms and definitions we used and explained in the Privacy Policy, will have the same meaning in this Policy. This Policy explains:

  • What are cookies?
  • Why do we use cookies?
  • What cookies are used when you use the Site?
  • How do third parties use cookies on the Site?

    What are cookies?

    A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your web browser that allows the Site or a third party to recognize you, as a visitor (and not as an individual). Cookies might be used for the following purposes: (1) to enable certain functions; (2) to provide analytics; (3) to store your preferences; and (4) to enable ad delivery and behavioral advertising. Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires, or until you delete your cookies from your browser. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after longer periods. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other entities are sometimes called “third party cookies.” Cookies are many times used with a pixel tag on the Sites. Pixel tags (also known as web beacons or clear GIFs) are typically transparent graphic images placed on a website. These pixels are used in combination with cookies to measure the actions of visitors to their websites that arrive through the services. For example, we, or our business partners may use pixel tags to track interactions on the Site/s or to understand referrals to partners from our Site/s, or, for Retargeting purposes, as we described in the Privacy Policy, or other interest-based advertising, as further explained in section below.

    Why do we use cookies?

    Cookies are used on our website to collect information about your user preferences, browsing habits and the device you have used to access our website (including the make, model and operating system, IP address, browser type and mobile device identifiers) so that we can:

    • provide essential features and functionality on our website;
    • help ensure that you get the best from our website by making it as easy and intuitive as possible for you to use;
    • remember choices you make and recognize you when you return, so you don't have to remind us each time you visit; and
    • monitor and analyze website usage and performance so that we can improve how it operates (including in relation to security) and the product selection and services available through it.

      What cookies are used when you use the Site?

      When you access and/or use the Site or interact with the services, we, or a third party may place a number of cookies in your browser. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will be used for a longer-term purpose, as described in our Privacy Policy. Different cookies have different functions. Each cookie serves one of the following purposes:

      • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for our website to operate. For example, they enable you to log into secure areas of our website.
      • Functionality cookies. These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make when visiting our website and recognize you when you return. For example, functionality cookies allow us to remember information such as your login details if you choose to create an account with us and other customized features. When you first access our websites, we ask you to read our Cookie and Privacy policies and acknowledge the use of the cookies before proceeding to use our websites.
      • Analytical/performance cookies. We use Google Analytics, a popular website analytics service provided by Google, and other analytical/performance cookies for the purposes of recognizing and measuring the number of visitors to our website and analyzing interactions with our website, such as items clicked on, web pages viewed and any web pages where users are encountering download error messages from time to time. The analytics service uses this information to compile anonymized reports on website activity, which we use to help improve the way our website works. To opt-out of cookies provided by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on will prevent your browser from sending information to Google Analytics.
      • Targeting/advertising cookies and social plugins. Our website may also use third parties (including Facebook) and social plugins (e.g., the Facebook “Like” button) to enable you to easily share information with others and help us carry out our advertising and marketing activities. When you visit our websites, these third party operators may be able to place a cookie on your device, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our website and to collect information about your browsing habits, including the web pages you’ve viewed and the links you’ve clicked through. This information is used to make our website more relevant to your interests. It is also used to make advertisements you see online more relevant to you, as well as to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. If you have previously logged into a social media website (e.g., Facebook) before browsing on our websites, the social plugin or cookie allows that social media website to receive information about your visit to particular pages on our website. The social plugin may collect this information for any such visitors who have logged into social networks, whether or not they specifically interact with the plugin on our website (e.g., by clicking “Like” or “Share”). The social plugin may also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our website with other users of their social media website. Targeted/advertising cookies and social plugins also enable us to measure and analyze the overall effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns so that we can improve them in the future.


          How do third parties use cookies on the Site?

          Third party entities like analytics. Third party vendors or ad networks generally use cookies to collect user information on an anonymous basis. They may use that information to better understand users’ activities on the Site and other websites that they visited immediately after.

          What are your cookie options?

          If you don’t like the idea of cookies or certain types of cookies, you can change your browser’s settings to delete cookies that have already been set and to not accept new cookies. To learn more about how to do this, visit the help pages of your browser. Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or do not accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly. You may also opt out of third party cookies by following the instructions provided by each third party in its privacy policy.

          How can you manage cookies?

          As we explain in our Cookie Policy, cookies help you to get the most out of our Site/s and services. If you do disable cookies you may find that certain sections of our Site do not properly function.

          How do we Respond to Do Not Track?

          Certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to TFS about how or whether TFS or third parties may collect information about your online activities. Currently, our websites and online resources do not respond to such signals.
