Like most other websites, the Calla shoes website uses ‘cookies’. ‘Cookies’ are small files saved to the user’s computers’ hard drive that track, save and store information about the user’s interactions and usage of the website. This allows the website, through its server, to provide the users with a tailored experience within the website and recognise when you visit. While cookies collect statistical data about your browsing actions, they do not identify you as an individual. For example, we use cookies to allow items to stay in your shopping cart, even when you leave our website. They help us improve and offer a more personalised service.

You are free to switch cookies off by setting your browser preferences but turning cookies off may result in a loss of functionality when using our website.

We also use tracking software to monitor the visitors to our website to better understand how they use it. This software is provided by Google Analytics which uses cookies to track visitor usage. The software will save a cookie to your computers’ hard drive in order to track and monitor your engagement and usage of the website, but will not store, save or collect personal information. You can read Google's privacy policy here for further information [ http://www.google.com/privacy.html ]. 

Other cookies may be stored to your computer’s hard drive by external vendors when this website uses referral programs, sponsored links or adverts. Such cookies are used for conversion and referral tracking and typically expire after 30 days, though some may take longer. No personal information is stored, saved or collected. 

Our website may contain links to other websites, run by other organisations and people. As our privacy policy applies to our website only, we encourage you to read the privacy statements on other websites you visit, even if you clicked to get onto them from our website. We cannot be held responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites, even if you access them using links from our website.

Our social media accounts may sometimes feature shortened versions of long web addresses. We advise that you take caution before clicking any shortened web addresses published on social media. We take every effort to ensure that only genuine links are published, but social media tends to be prone to spam, therefore we cannot be held liable for any damages caused by visiting shortened links.
