What are Cookies?

Cookies are bits of data stored by your internet browser about a website. Websites then use this data from the browser each time the website is visited to ‘remember’ certain functions the browser had performed in past visits. The main aim of SAGE’s cookies is to help our customers have a better user experience.

At SAGE we use cookies to help customers who want us to remember them, to stay logged into our sites, so you aren’t always required to remember a password. We also use cookies to remember items that have been added to your basket/cart.

SAGE's Cookie Policy

To be able to order inspection/review copies or to purchase products from SAGE, you will need to have cookies enabled. If you do not enable cookies, you will still be able to browse our site but will not be able to add anything to your basket/cart or place an order.

We don't store any credit card details in cookies or any information to identify you personally. We do use information gathered from some cookies to help improve your experience. For example, some of the cookies we use ultimately help us identify potential areas of our site that customers may find difficult to interact with or find confusing and in turn either leave the website or drop out of making a transaction. If we are able to identify these areas, it means we are able to improve them for our customers.

This information is being provided to ensure that SAGE is being transparent about our use of cookies, to make it clear how we use the information we collect and to be in compliance with EU legislation.

Third Party Cookies

On the SAGE website we allow our users to conveniently be able to share information about products of interest via different platforms such as Twitter and Facebook or even by a simple email. The functionality has been created by the companies themselves and provided to us to display on our site. By using these functions there may be cookies being created or updated on your machine that are not set by SAGE but by these third parties. Because we don’t control the settings of these cookies, please check the third party websites for more information.
