At DM Historics, we use technology like cookies to improve the experience you have with us online. Here, you can find out more about our Cookie Policy, explaining what cookies are active on our website, what user data they track and why, and how this data is then stored. 

What is a Cookie?

If you’re not sure what this means, then let’s start by explaining briefly what Cookies are. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are used widely across the internet, helping to make websites work more efficiently. They help websites to see what you’ve said or done previously, allowing them to recognise you and remember information about you that makes your experience online more tailored.

It is a legal requirement for businesses that operate within the EU, or businesses that have a target audience in the EU, to have a Cookie Policy visible to customers on their website. This is due to the EU Cookie Law, or the ePrivacy Directive, which was first put in place in 2011 to control how a user’s personal information is collected and processed. More recently, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has placed further requirements on this area, ensuring that users must consent to the use of the cookies before they're used.
