Use Of Cookies 

The Bristol Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Bristol pages, or register with Bristol site or services, a cookie helps Bristol to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Bristol Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Bristol features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Bristol services or Web sites you visit.

Security Of Your Personal Information 

Bristol secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Bristol secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes To This Statement

Bristol will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Bristol encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Bristol is protecting your information.
