What About "Cookies"?
What is a "cookie"?
A "cookie" is a small text message that the web server asks permission to place on your web browser. The web server and web browser pass this text message back and forth to help improve the quality of your visit on our Website. For example, “cookies” keep track of the items in your shopping cart and which forms you’ve already filled out.
How does bisco use "cookies"?
We use "cookies" to allow you to build an order over time, adding components throughout the day or over an extended period of time. Uncommitted orders will remain available for 30 days. An order that has not been visited within that 30 day period will be removed. We also use “cookies” to maintain a client/server connection or user "state" as you move between pages building an order.
How can I remove "cookies"?
"Cookies" can be removed or blocked from your device by adjusting the settings in most web browsers. However, the removal or prevention of “cookies” may result in lost functionality on our Website, including the loss of shopping cart information and auto filled forms.
