1. What Are Cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or mobile application. Cookies are then sent back to the website on each subsequent visit. Cookies typically contain identifiers, site names, and some numbers and characters.
The purpose of cookies ranges from allowing a website to perform basic functions to provide you with a more personalised experience for you.
There are two ways to categorize cookies: (i) essential and non-essential cookies, and (ii) first-party and third-party cookies.
Essential Cookies, also known as strictly necessary cookies, are cookies used for the sole purpose of fulfilling your request or for transmitting data over an electronic communication network.
Non-essential Cookies are all cookies that are not absolutely necessary for the function of the website. Examples of non-essential cookies include but are not limited to targeting (advertising) cookies, functionality cookies, and analytical cookies.
First-party Cookies are cookies created and stored in this domain, which allow us to collect information on you.
Third-partyCookies are cookies created and retrieved by other parties.
2. What Categories of Cookies Company Uses?
At Narwal, the cookies have been categorized based on the guidelines found in the ICC UK Cookie guide.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
Analytical /Performance Cookies
These cookies collect information about how you use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if you get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Targeting Cookies or/ advertising Cookies
These cookies are used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organizations.
3. How Can You Manage Cookies?

Different jurisdictions guarantee their residents with certain data subject rights, which may apply to you.

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify the users via in-site notification within 7 business days.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
