At Winparts we respect your concerns about privacy and value the relationship that we have with you. That's why we like to be clear and transparent beforehand concerning the use of cookies and other techniques used to improve the website and marketing for you as a customer.

Cookies

Cookies are used to help speed up your future activities and your experience on Winparts websites.

Cookies are stored on your device to make sure our website works well. Cookies are handy little files which store data so that you don´t have to refill your shopping cart once you go to another page. You don´t have to provide the same information, over and over again. This makes visiting our website way more convenient and faster.

Also from our side are cookies very handy. They provide us insights in how our website is used, which enables us in turn to make it that easier and friendlier to use. Insights that, like which button works better for our customers, help make it possible for better and faster use.

In case you are uncomfortable that cookies are stored, you simply remove these. You can moreover disable the use of cookies (and JavaScript) entirely.

Below you can find an explanation per browser how to remove or disable cookies entirely…

Other techniques
Next to cookies our online store also uses JavaScript and web beacons. These are internet techniques that work together with cookies. JavaScript enables the collection of data in handy little text files (the so-called cookies) which in turn can be send (known as web beacons). That's how the shopping cart of our store knows for example you have chosen 2 cans of motor oil ? stored in your cookie ? and that these are showed properly when you're ready to order.
