We think it's important for you to understand how cookies and other similar technologies are used by InstaDiet. These technologies help InstaDiet function, allow us to understand how you use our services, and have a number of purposes (beyond just advertising) that you can read about in this policy.

What are cookies?
Cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages. They are stored in your browser’s cache and allow a website or a third party to recognise your browser. Cookies can’t harm your computer. We don’t 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 site. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors that can sometimes occur on websites.
There are three primary types of cookies:
- Session cookies are specific to a particular visit and carry information as you view different pages so you don’t have to re-enter information every time you change pages or make a purchase. Session cookies expire and delete themselves automatically in a short period of time like after you leave the Site or when you close your web browser.
- Persistent cookies remember certain information about your preferences for viewing the site, and allow InstaDiet to recognise you each time you return. Persistent cookies are stored on your browser cache or mobile device until you choose to delete them, and otherwise typically delete themselves at expiration.
- Third-party cookies are placed by someone other than InstaDiet and may gather browsing activity across multiple websites and across multiple sessions.
They are usually a type of persistent cookie and are stored until you delete them or they expire based on the time period set in each third-party cookie.
Cookies store data about your use, but they are helpful because they allow us to help InstaDiet function and customise your experience. To order products on InstaDiet, you need to have cookies enabled. If you don’t wish to enable cookies, you’ll still be able to browse the site and use it for research purposes.
