What are Cookies?

When you visit certain sites, you might spot a notification on the page asking for your permission to ‘accept cookies’. If you choose to accept this cookie, you are agreeing to have a small file placed on your computer’s hard drive.

When the file is added, the cookie will help the site to analyse web traffic, let you know when you visit certain sites, and tailor its operation to your individual browsing behaviour. This allows web applications to respond to you and advertise to you based on your likes and dislikes, and your needs and preferences.

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies help us, as site providers, to give you a better experience when using our website. By enabling us to monitor which of our pages are being used, how much traffic is reaching our site, and which content you find useful, you are allowing us to use traffic log cookies to tailor our site to your specific tastes.

This information is only analysed for statistical purposes, and a cookie in no way allows us to access your computer or any personal information about you, beyond that which you choose to share with our site. The data is then removed from our system, and deleted.

We use advertising tools such as Google AdWords to place TOTO Energy ads on other websites you may visit. These tools may set cookies to track the performance of our advertising campaigns and allow us to tailor the advertising you might be interested in.  To control the information Google uses to show you ads, please follow the link below:
