Cookies are small data files that your browser sets on your computer or device. A cookie itself does not contain or collect information. However, when it is read by a server via a web browser, it can help a website deliver a more user-friendly service – for example, remembering previous purchases or account details.
Both we and our third-party tracking partners use browser storage, program storage, cookies, pixels, beacons, scripts and tags to operate our websites and apps, and provided you have given consent, to analyze your use. We may receive reports on these from our third-party tracking partners on an individual and aggregate basis, and those partners may combine that information with other information they have collected from you.
The cookies we use fall into three categories.

What if I do not want cookies:
Necessary Cookies are essential for the website to operate, and you cannot opt out of them, but you can delete necessary cookies after use – see how below.
For all other cookies, you can always adjust your settings and revoke your consent.
How to get rid of your cookies:
The cookies are placed on your device. This means that we cannot delete them for you. You must do that yourself in the way prescribed by your specific device. If you are on a website operated by TRU, you can also avoid cookies being placed by adjusting the browser settings on your device. Real browser cookies are set to expire. Similar types of technologies, like local storage on your device, do not have expiration built-in, and so must be deleted by you. We have linked instructions on how to adjust/delete cookies on some of the more common devices below.
