USE OF COOKIES
The Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalise 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 personalise Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd pages, or register with the Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd site or services, a cookie helps Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd 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 Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd features that you customised.

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 Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd services or Web sites you visit.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Mother Bear (Pty) Ltd secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
